Rio Occupation London
Commissioned by Rio de Janeiro’s State Culture Secretariat and Executive Produced by People’s Palace Projects. Co-produced by BAC. Sponsored by Petrobras.
30 Rio Artists, 30 Days in London from 8 July
Commissioned by Rio de Janeiro’s State Culture Secretariat and Executive Produced by People’s Palace Projects, Rio Occupation London will see 30 ground-breaking Rio artists occupy the vibrant streets, stages and squares of London this summer, working across the capital with UK based artists.
The Occupation will open on Sunday 8 July 2012 with Rio Occupation: London Launch at Battersea Arts Centre presented in association with LIFT. Each artist will present their ‘calling card’ to showcase the dynamic variety and extraordinary breadth of work that Rio has to offer and London will welcome them with an almighty party. Then come and find us performing in venues across London from the Albany to the V&A, including Rio Occupation: East at Rich Mix on the 13th July, Rio Occupation: Going for Gold at the V&A Late on Friday 27 July and finally Rio Occupation: Festival Finale in association with the V22 Summer Club at Biscuit Factory in Bermondsey on the 1-3 August.
The summer is here and the Brazilians are coming!
