Boiler Room Festival: Linn da Quebrada - Somerset House Studios - London

We’re widening the scope of Boiler Room Festival with City Programme, a series of off-camera events across London’s best venues. We kick of City Programme at Somerset House Studios with a celebration of São Paulo’s queer community, thriving in spite of the huge discrimination they face from an increasingly-conservative Brazilian presidency.Headlining, we have the UK debut of Linn da Quebrada, queer trans rapper and a self-professed ‘gender terrorist’ described as the ‘new voice of Brazil’ by Mykki Blanco. Joining her are Batekoo, a collective prioritising a safe and accessible inclusive dancefloor space for the LGBTQ+ community in São Paulo. London’s femme + non-binary collective and Somerset House Studios residents Resis'Dance round out the night.We’ll also be screening ‘Bixa Travesty,’ Kiko Goifman and Claudia Priscilla’s award-winning 2018 documentary showcasing the political artistry of Linn da Quebrada.Ltd tickets here: blrrm.tv/linn-de-qu-ra
