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
