Kuniklo is an art collective based out of Puerto Rico and Austin, TX, comprised of four members, José Luis Sanabria, Luis Gabriel Sanabria, Sebastian Turner and Olivia Warner.
Working with music, theatre, costume, painting, video, sculpture and dance they create immersive installations and full body experiences. Their practice centers around themes of nature, sexuality, culture, rituals, and investigations into literary and philosophical theory. This particular spectacle meshes into a dense experimental map to create other-worldly, multidimensional environments. In their time together as a collective, they have dedicated themselves to an art practice that is immersive both in its creation and for the public to experience. They strive for an ideal of queer utopianism; creating life and spaces that do not necessarily reflect our current world, but rather the world we want.
