What happens when unacknowledged histories meet leaky pipes? How do you feel when your sex-obsessed, foul-mouthed, consistently-intoxicated housemate also wants to dismantle the patriarchy? What is it like when our chosen family are also our comrades?

Welcome to People of Colours, a unique blend of spoken word, music and movement that is a reminder of coming home.

This debut conversation by artists of colour leads us to the heart of many realities, revealing black and brown diversity as celebration, joy and really well-seasoned food.

People of Colours is an under-repair property with the lease coming up, it is a late-night conversation over a durrie you can’t afford, it is that house in the corner everyone is kicking-on at after The Beat shuts.

Welcome to the party.


We take the safety of our patrons, staff and artists seriously.
