THE Cultural Center of the Philippines continues its pursuit of “truth, goodness and beauty” with new free performances for its Sinag: Festival of Radiance, happening every weekend starting November 16 until December 15.

Witness a traditional komedya on December 8, with Komedya ng Don Galo, the official theatre organization from Brgy. Don Galo in Parañaque City. Established in 2004, the theater group aims to promote, preserve and support the tradition of komedya, a unique form of theater.

Feel the holiday spirit as the Philippine Women’s University's Indayog Gongs performs well-loved Christmas carols using gongs and bamboo instruments on December 15.

The performances complement the beautiful lanterns created by the Kapampangan craftsmen from the renowned family of lanternmakers, now led by 5th generation artisan, Arvin Quiwa, as well as the 20-feet sundial art installation by multimedia artist Abdulmari “Toym” Imao Jr. Located at the CCP Front Lawn, the installation represents the role of arts and culture in society over time.
Catch all the performances at 6pm and 7pm. The light and show continues at 8pm and 9pm, except on evenings where there are performances at the CCP Main Theater. Schedule of the performances and light shows vary to change during inclement weather.

Combining traditional arts and modern technology, Sinag: Festival of Radiance showcases the CCP’s fifty years of excellence in the field of performing, literary, visual and multi-media arts and its continuing partnership with its regional network. The light and sound show runs until January 5, 2020. (PR)
