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

Dani Girl, its beautiful and heart breaking.

The much awaited Dani Girl, A musical about hope by The Sandbox Collective and 9 Works Theatrical is the most beautiful local produced theater musical so far for 2019, it gives you a lot of realization about life, those simple things that we go beyond in daily grind yet we fail to recognize its effort.
Dani Girl is a journey of cancer patient Dani and her friend Marty, on how they accept their fate of living limited because of a deadly disease,  with the help of their guardian angel they try to find answer, why all people its them who need to suffer, why all people in the whole world, they are the one who have this disease that cure is not a sure win.
This year’s re-staging is really great, with the inclusions of visuals such as videos and graphics, it was more beautiful than you can imagine, of course all the music put together are superb to listen and well choreograph to please the audience.
The part that Dani needs to say goodbye to her mom after being in coma is such a heartbreaking scene, literally we are crying sympathizing with the grieving mom, if you’ve loss someone dear to you definitely you will be touched.
The play will let you understand that Cancer is not an enemy, everything exists for a reason and need to appreciate things in your surroundings, some little things that make you happy even for a short time is a joy to consider, and not all people experience that kind of feeling.

We are so grateful to see Felicity Kyle Napuli as Dani Girl, this kid is a gem in Philippine Theater along with Daniel Drilon playing as Marty, their singing and acting prowess is so believable. One commendable part is when Dani is talking to God, from a smokey stage to just a normal backstage is something to fathom, where all your questions is answer that raise in this play. 
Dani Girl: A Musical About Hope open last August 10, 2019, and will run until September 1, 2019 at the Carlos P. Romulo Auditorium, RCBC Plaza, Ayala Avenue, Makati City. Tickets through Ticketworld online. Co-presented by The Sandbox Collective and 9 Works Theatrical, together with Make-A-Wish Philippines.
