Take a look at some of the upcoming events as part of the latest, nationwide season from We Are Parable.

Janelle Monae – Dirty Computer: 6th October, Centre of Contemporary Arts, Glasgow

We Are Parable have partnered with the Scottish Queer International Film Festival to present a special screening of Janelle Monae’s Dirty Computer visual album or, as she calls it, an “emotion picture”.

Providing us with a story on how the world views those who typify “otherness”, “Dirty Computer” represents a thematic shift for the visual album as a genre and for Janelle Monae. An unmissable film.

After the screening, we’ll invite you to attend a listening party where we’ll be playing the “Dirty Computer” in its entirety, with additional music from artists who have inspired Monae’s artistic outlook.

Prince – Purple Rain: 15th October, Everyman Crystal Palace, London

Join us as we celebrate one of the first visual albums created by a Black Musician. We will screen 1984’s Purple Rain at the Everyman Crystal Palace, complete with the Reel Deal band providing the vibes for a post screening afterparty. 

Prince – Purple Rain, 2nd November, Midlands Arts Centre, Birmingham

We bring the Purple party to the Midlands as we present a special screening of the classic, with a very special audio visual performance from DJ Psykhomantus.

Rapman – Shiro’s Story, 5th December, Midlands Arts Centre, Birmingham

A modern day tale of brotherhood and betrayal, we bring the online sensation to the big screen.
