TO celebrate the 53rd anniversary of the Cultural Center of the Philippines this month of September, the SINAG 2022: Light and Sound spectacle will light up the CCP façade from September 22-25, 2022. Multi-awarded lighting designer John Batalla conceptualized the outdoor light show with sound design by Jethro Joaquin. “We will interpret the three transcendentals of Truth, Goodness and Beauty paired with a soundscape of indigenous Filipino instruments, snippets of folk music and quintessential Filipino sound bites or quotable quotes from the past,” Batalla said. Batalla partnered with Joaquin to curate the soundscape or soundtrack for the show. SINAG 2022 is produced by the CCP Production Design and Technical Services Division.  The event will create a vibrant and effervescent atmosphere on the façade and its environs, the CCP PDTSD said. The show, which runs for 10 minutes, will open at 7pm on September 22 and run from September 23 to 25 at 7:00pm, 7:30pm, 8:00pm, 8:30pm, 9:00p

The FEU Dance Company to hold its First-Ever Virtual Concert on Feb. 22

 

Unstoppable – that’s the word that best describes the FEU Dance Company (FDC). 

After the pandemic hit, schools and dance studios closed like most establishments but that did not stop the said company from creating art and immersing people in it. 

Company members juggled their responsibilities as family members, students, dancers, and human beings, all while being confined within their homes. 

On Tuesday, February 22, 2022 at 4:30 P.M, the FDC will premiere LockDance,  a virtual dance concert that took two years to make. It will be streamed through  the FEU Center for the Arts’ YouTube Channel.

 LockDance features creative choreographers namely: 

FDC Artistic Director Eduardo Malagkit,  Kevin Francisco, Carlo Padoga, Danyel Reyes, Micah Soriano, Brielle Zulueta, Angelikha Bay, Kiera Elizares, Ahren Bitong, Jahmil Dayao, Elvin Salazar, Cirus Bonifacio, Mya Samonte, and Claire Planas, and their dances that tell stories of reminiscing, contemplating, struggling, and yearning for hope despite the setbacks of the pandemic.

This free concert can be viewed from the comfort and safety of one's home as the FDC's way of sharing the message of hope and resiliency with its audience. 

From lockdown to LockDance, everything will be alright in due time.
