Rio artists 'occupy' London houses to create 'Olympic link'

A group of 30 artists from Rio de Janeiro, the host of the 2016 Olympic Games, have been 'occupying' a number of houses across London as part of a project which aims to set up cultural links between the two Olympic host cities.

London residents volunteered to have their homes used as venues for live music, theatre, dance and art installations for the Rio Occupation London Festival, which runs until 3 August.
