A FILM BY SARA JORDENÖ AND TWIGGY PUCCI GARÇON — WITH LSS PERFORMANCE, AND MUSIC BY QWEEN BEAT

Kicking off the Red Bull Music Academy Festival New York 2016, we’re hosting the NYC premiere of KIKI, a cinematic journey into the city’s ballroom subculture known as Kiki. Created and governed by LGBTQ youth of color, the Kiki scene prides itself as a “society within a society,” and provides an activist and creative space for a community dealing with marginalization and discrimination. The award-winning film by Swedish director Sara Jordenö and local Kiki gatekeeper Twiggy Pucci Garçon premiered at this year’s Sundance Film Festival to much acclaim, and will screen at a special New York event among the very people who are shaping the Kiki scene. The screening will be followed by a “Legends, Statements & Stars” performance, bringing out KIKI’s protagonists for individual dance showcases, and enlisting ballroom DJ extraordinaire MikeQ and collective Qween Beat for musical support.
