Well, you’re probably drowning in parties, concerts, and festivals, or even confused as to which ones you should attend and prioritize. But if you’re looking for a Christmas celebration that’s notably Filipino, one that includes exciting performances and is budget-friendly, the Cultural Center of the Philippines’ BINURDA 2022 is exactly what you need. A gathering that is a concert and a light and sound show in one, BINURDA foregrounds the Philippines’ vibrant cultural scene and features the hottest local performers, which includes no less than SB19, giving you a Paskong Pinoy experience that you deserve. And get this, it’s all for free and is open to the public.
Elevating your holiday experience, the CCP has prepared an awe-inspiring holiday production that’s brimming with culture, dance, and music through BINURDA 2022. Imbibing the joyous season, the colorful gathering features a light and sound show that will see the CCP Main Building façade transform into pina jusi textile with stunningly intricate callado embroidery and needlework that pays homage to the Philippines’ weaving heritage, hence the name of the event.
The one-of-a-kind production will also feature performances from the hottest local artists and will be headlined by SB19, giving A’TIN the chance to party with their idols. Being the ambassadors of National Commission For Culture and the Arts and Sentro Rizal, it’s just fitting that Pablo, Stell, Ken, Justin, and Josh are part of this dazzling cultural celebration. You will also get to marvel at cultural performances from The National Dance Company of the Philippines, the Nightingales, the Male Ensemble of the Philippines (MEP), and Bayanihan among other yet-to-be announced surprise performers.
“As the Main Building closes for renovation and restoration in the coming years, Binurda symbolizes the people’s anticipation and the artistic promise of fresh blossoming of a new culture and arts institution. But before the renovation begins, the CCP hopes to bring world-class productions to Filipino people,” says the CCP about the exhilarating event.
Helmed by accomplished choreographer and theater director Dexter Martinez (Ang Huling El Bimbo), the BINURDA concert will be divided into different presentations that will honor Filipino cultural traditions and values. Like the Tanglaw ng Hiraya suite which will transport the audience to the journey of dreamweavers from Mindanao and the part called Pagmamapa sa Padron at Pinagmulan which will focus on the Muslim Filipino culture.
The BINURDA Christmas concert and lighting show will commence on December 15, 2022, at the CCP Front Lawn which will be attended by SB19. Meanwhile, the façade decorations will run until January 2023 giving you and your family and friends the chance to immerse yourself in culture this holiday season.
