Where do we go when culture and country is stripped off only to leave us with the risks of our own isolation? How many rejected swipe-rights, legislations of erasure and glitter-less, terror-filled
nights before you arrive at your truth? 

Come forth and be revered. 

Brown Church is a theatrical spectacle as served by Meanjin-based revolution, The Naavikaran Collective. At this holy, gay altar we will witness the journeys of displacement, queer liberation and the euphoria of culture as explored through poetry, music and dance. It centres queerness as a central faith, bringing out the exuberant need to realize colonisation in order to destroy it. 

This work is prayer. It is a call for community. It is the future grounded in reality. 

Welcome to Brown Church. It’s time to come home.

This production discusses colonisation, racialized trauma, racism, suicide.
