KOMUNIDAD X (KX) is an anti-disciplinary* collective committed to creating ‘“life’” performances for civic engagement and social development. Comprised of social act-ors working at the intersection of art, culture and development, it is the collective arm of Sipat Lawin Inc (SLI), an edge-work contemporary cultural laboratory. KX is primarily based in Manila, cultivating a social ecology of performance development platforms with different communities across the Philippines and around the world. In 2020 KOMUNIDAD X launched its inaugural year with a 3-year commitment to responding to the theme of climate and cultural crisis with the Komunidad X Project. In line with this, the collective is initiating inter-agency platforms towards the creation of art as/for social ecologies.
