OUTsider presents: KUNIKLO
A video and performance program by Luis Gabriel Sanabria, José Luis Sanabria, Sebastian Turner and Olivia Warner, and co-presented by Cine Las Americas. KUNIKLO is presented as part of OUTsider’s program “Joint Showcase.”
In these videos we present two natural settings and the creatures that have evolved in each. The videos depict the isolated evolutions that are unique to islands, strange beasts that could not have come to be on the mainland. The creatures eat, mate and raise their young in beautiful, symbiotic dances.
This project reflects our desire to create an alternate history/future for the wild and isolated island of Puerto Rico. We imagined the natural setting free from industry and colony, saturated and fertile. The post-human creatures create new magic and rituals from their surroundings.
Will also include a performance component.
Note: KUNIKLO is the first of two programs in a Joint Showcase — attend KUNIKLO and stay for a special sneak peek of CHRISTEENE’s new music video “ACKTION TOILET.”
