Róse Hernandez was a 2017 THAWALLS InSession artist and received a 2012/13 LinkUP Residency Award to create “Planet X The Nu Fantastic”.
An infusion of butoh, rave culture, social and ecstatic dance, drug ritual, parades, and techno structurally based on traditional voodoo fet ceremonies, Planet X: The Nu Fantastiik aims to take the audience on a seductive tour through world annihilation and the subsequent metamorphosis into a queer utopian society. This three day festival* moves the viewer through feminine, masculine, and trans energy by shifting from ritual to myth and hopes to illuminate a new creation story for a post-apocalyptic world, where space can infiltrate place and the third sex is seen as the new divine.
Rose Hernandez is a Chicago‐based artist. Drawing from elements of dance, performance, theater, music, and ritual he explores the spaces that border between the body, fantasy, queer invention, and religious practice in search for transcendence in a post-millenial landscape. Jose attended the School of the Art Institute of Chicago (BFA 2008). He has presented work in Chicago at Defibrillator Gallery, S+S Project, Sullivan Galleries, Garbage World, Happy Dog, Berlin, The Hideout, Aldo Castillo Gallery, and New Capital. He has also exhibited work at Oliver Francis Gallery (Dallas), Aux Performance Space, and Little Berlin (Philadelphia). He has performed and collaborated with artists Antibody Corporation, Ginger Krebs, La Spacer, Gel Set, Eileen Doyle, and Heather Lynn.
