The season is a dynamic mix of new collaborations and exciting transfers. Partnerships with renowned organisations like LIFT, Clean Break, Fuel, Northern Stage and the National Theatre of Wales are set to invigorate the Brixton cultural scene. Highlights include Jade Anouka’s Edinburgh transfer, Heart, and a unique opera electronica gig by Pecho Mama, rooted in Brixton’s vibrant backdrop.

Kicking off the season, the National Theatre of Wales presents an immersive promenade piece as part of a national tour. Directed by filmmaker Gavin Porter, this innovative work explores grief and celebrates life, originating from a community-led theatre project.

The programme also features Liberation Squares, a co-production by Fifth Word and Nottingham Playhouse, in association with Brixton House. Inspired by graphic novels and real-life youth activists, this play by Sonali Bhattacharyya focuses on young Muslim women’s empowerment, blending humour and humanity.

A groundbreaking co-production, yet to be announced, will be a focal point. Commissioned by LIFT and Clean Break, this project will unite Brazilian and UK women artists in a powerful exploration of justice. More details are expected in March 2024 alongside LIFT’s festival programme reveal.

Brixton House continues to engage with the local Windrush generation, bringing back Daniel Ward’s acclaimed solo show, Everything I Own. The venue also supports emerging talent with the return of Before I go and Is Dat u Yh?. Family audiences can look forward to Protest, a collaborative effort by Fuel, Northern Stage, and the National Theatre of Scotland.

Complementing these shows, Brixton House will offer a range of evening events in partnership with Fane and Dark Matter. Additionally, a new comedy night hosted by Thanyia Moore and friends is in the pipeline.

Head of Programming and Producing Ruth Hawkins says “This season sees us announce a full six months’ worth of work, again building on partnerships and ensuring that our work is reflective of and for the community we are in. We have been working hard over the last 18 months to build our audiences, learning from our successes and reflecting on the challenges. The programme must speak and elevate current issues while maintaining the starting point; which will always be the art, and our core commitment to serve as a vibrant hub for creativity and social interaction. Our upcoming programme commits to reflecting our local community and to developing new work offering a platform for all intersections, and offering space for conversation and calls to action.”
