Presented by Metro Arts and Mad Dance House
A wildly entertaining night of brown showmanship that proudly puts urbanised cultures and their creatives at the forefront.
Swinging into Brisbane with an infectious playlist and a stunning lineup, Rhythmology is an inclusive celebration of urban music and its many facets and expressions.
A celebration of the diversity of ethnic cultures, Rhythmology will explore the evolution and variation of rhythm and blues, a subculture that was birthed in African American communities and has taken root in ethnic cultures the world over.
Get ready for an immersive and dynamic showcase of drag, live music and street dance featuring local drag legends Thicc Shake Crew, dancers from Brisbane’s pioneering vogue house The House of Alexander, Music Production by Dimes, and vocal sensation Garret Lyon. Join us for an unforgettable event that proudly puts urbanised cultures and their creatives at the forefront, reclaiming space.
