KX is primarily based in Manila, cultivating a social ecology of performance development platforms with different communities across the Philippines and around the world.

This 2020 KOMUNIDAD X launches 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.
