Project summary

Spanning elements of pop, contemporary R&B, hip hop, trap, electropop, synth pop, dance, tecno-brega and reggaeton, Travesti Biológica is a transgenre electronic pop album that celebrates the beauty of trans and non-binary bodies: the struggles, resilience and empowerment, created by Mavi Veloso. This proposal is to undertake a residency in Amsterdam to develop this album into a performative, live concert format in partnership with FLAM Festival (Festival of Live Art Amsterdam). Following this, Mavi will deliver a workshop in Amsterdam & go on to present at BUZZCUT Festival (Glasgow) & IPAF Festival (Warehouse 9, Copenhagen); two Festivals which create international pathways & platforms for early career LGBTQIA+ working in experimental performance & performance art.
