The fabulous and impossible legacy of Leigh Bowery

2022 is the five year anniversary of the opening of the Bowery Theatre and Gallery in St Albans. The Bowery Theatre was named after the late artist, Leigh Bowery who grew up in Brimbank. Leigh Bowery was one of the most influential international arts figures of the 80s and 90s. A celebrated fixture of the fashion, nightlife and avant-garde scenes in London and New York, he was known for his flamboyant get-ups, larger than life personality and bold performance art. As a creative space we are inspired by his legacy.

Join us as we celebrate the legacy of the inimitable Leigh Bowery with special guests Tom Bowery (father of Leigh) and Bronwyn Bowery (sister) in conversation with Michael Winkler. Featuring a curated performance program by James Welsby, and an art exhibition by Tom Christophersen.
