CineBrasil - Discussion with Bixa Travestry protagonist, performance artist and singer Linn da Quebrada

Tuesday, March 30, 2021

5:00pm – 6:30pm

Bixa Travesty Synopsis: A portrait of transgender musician and artist Linn da Quebrada, who uses her body and performances as weapons to fight machismo, transphobia, and racism. She speaks of her growing up as a black queer in São Paulo's favelas, and the challenges of breaking into Brazil's heteronormative funk scene.

Join the Brazil Initiative for a discussion with Bixa Travesty protagonist, performance artist and singer Linn da Quebrada.

Linn da Quebrada is a Brazilian multi-artist. In addition to the album Pajubá (2017), Linn hosts a talk show and also acts in cinema and TV. Travesti and "artivist", Linn has reached and conquered territories in other countries and continents, in addition to Brazil, with a combative art that disputes spaces, narratives and imagination.
