U - KUKO is a character stated in stories and dances of the Peruvian Andean region. This character is mostly found in folkloric festivities where his job is to accompany the crowd. In the Andean Cosmovision this character has the sacred role of maintaining the discipline and order in religius Peregrinations.
However, this Ukuko is out of context and his reactions will not be taken as they are in his homeland. Who is the folkloric character outside of his "story"?
This intervention was first performed in 2 train stations in Bruxelles. Second time with an aerial rope in Recyclart(Bruxelles). The following video is a caption of the performance in Circusbende Festival, Amsterdam 2022.
Duration: Rope performance 10 min
