Cultural Center of the Philippines’ PASINAYA Open House Festival 2012

The Cultural Center of the Philippines presents a whole day of the finest in Philippine arts and culture at the annual Pasinaya Open House Festival. Read about the events from this year’s celebration after the jump.

Every year, in celebration of the National Arts Month, the Cultural Center of the Philippines (CCP) opens its doors to the biggest one-day performing arts festival, the Pasinaya. All performing areas around the bastion serve as host to numerous artists from universities, church groups and communities, boasting their unique talents in showcasing true Filipino artistry.

Aside from snippets of performances from various groups, there are also information booths, exhibits, film screenings, puppet shows, storytelling, performance poetry, culinary fair and cooking demos, and an arts and collectibles market. The CCP Pasinaya, being held annually, seeks to increase awareness of the CCP performance season and programs. Drawing crowds to the CCP offers audiences a day of fun and excellent entertainment through the popular “see-all-you-can, pay-what-you-can” scheme.

Being a member of a folk dance group, KALOOB: Philippine Music & Dance Ministry, we also got the chance to take part for this year’s festival. While we were on standby waiting for our slot at one of the performance areas, I got to sneak in some time to take photos with my LC-A+ loaded with Fujifilm Color Negative ISO 100.

This yearly event is something not to be missed, not only for the sake of taking good photos but also to be aware and be proud that we Filipinos have our own unique cultures and arts that are worth sharing to the whole world.
