CCP's Pasinaya 2011
Every year, the Cultural Center of the Philippines opens its doors to the public through an event that consists of 100+ teasers and programs. Headlined by the center's resident groups like Tanghalang Pilipino and Ballet Theater Philippines, it is also participated by cultural groups from different schools. By the promise of it, it's very jampacked. I, for instance, missed two of the shows that I really wanted to see (excerpts from "Zsazsa Zaturnnah, Ze Muzical" and "Beatles in Baroque") because the house was already full. It was frustrating. The priority pass that costs P100 (which is a baller band and that is cool)doesn't work as an assurance for a seat. Aside from the dance numbers that popped from almost everywhere, I was delighted to see Ballet Philippines' "Hero's Journey" and the Phillipine Madrigal Singers' "All For Love" (which is in preparation for their concert of the same title for the February 12 and 13 weekend also in CCP).
More details about the event can be found in CCP website. And more pictures here.
SIDE TRIP: At around 3pm, I hurried to Robinsons Galleria to meet the group who would visit the shoot of the short film "Mate" (done by some students from Letran). The location is in Lakeside Park in Angono, Rizal, which I think prettier if we reached it before dusk. Some attempts at night shots here.
