CELEBRATING its 52nd founding anniversary this year, the Cultural Center of the Philippines looks back on the year that was, reflects on our current dispensation, and anticipates what the future brings for the artistic sector and the country in general, through a light, projection and sound show, in Sinag 2021, slated on November 18 to 21, 2021.

The CCP’s iconic building facade will serve as canvas for a projection mapping conceptualized and executed by renowned projection designer, GA Fallarme.

Featuring CCP’s archival footages and some visual elements to add texture, volume and movement to an otherwise static element, the projection show revolves around the theme “KAHAPON, NGAYON, at BUKAS” as a reflection on the storied past, on-going struggles, and fervent hopes for a better normal.

KAHAPON, the first segment, pays tribute to the Filipino audiences who have been an important part of the CCP journey through the decades. Accompanied by singer/composer Ebe Dancel’s “Manatili,” this segment will showcase images of audience members and timelapse footage of people filling in the various CCP theaters and spaces.

The second segment, NGAYON, contemplates on the COVID-19 pandemic and how it has affected the country, particularly, the artistic communities, through a short animation. It features the story and illustrations by Joel “Făbô” Fabonan, animated by Fallarme, with National Artist Lucrecia Kasilag’s Divertissement as music bed.

The animation video delves into the people’s sentiments during this pandemic, and how arts became their haven in this trying time. It highlights how the CCP continues to execute its mandate to bring arts and culture closer to the Filipino people in the safety of their homes. As the Center prepares to reopen its doors, the animation video reiterates that the CCP remains the home of the Filipino artists.

Set in electro-pop music by Joee Mejias, a fun and whimsical video where a CCP trickster invades the virtual world will be shown for the final segment – BUKAS.

The light show, designed by the CCP artistic and technical team led by Danilo Villanueva and Louie Alcoran, intensifies the artistic ambiance with creative interlude of lights and sounds in the fountain and other areas. Inspired by an original design of Teddy Hilado, “A Little Light Music,” set to Igor Stravinsky’s “Firebird,” the presentation will showcase the facets of the building in a new light.
