In spite of the challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Cultural Center of the Philippines heralds the holiday season and joins the worldwide celebration with “PASKO 2020,” a splendid display of Parul Sampernandu, which will light up the CCP Main Building Facade and the complex grounds from December 10, 2020 to January 3, 2021.
The center upcycles the lanterns from years of storage, which were originally designed by the Quiwa Family from San Fernando, Pampanga. With the health crisis and the aftermath of natural disasters that hit the country, the creative craftsmen from Pampanga, who have lost livelihood opportunities, cannot be disparaged. They worked hard to improve on the eight-point star lanterns in the CCP's keep and refresh their fascia with gold foil.
A projection mapping by renowned projection designer GA Fallarme complements the glimmering lanterns. Completing the whole magical experience will be the light and sound spectacle designed by Danilo Villanueva.
In addition, there will be a selection of short animation films from the Gawad CCP Para sa Alternatibong Pelikula archives for everyone to enjoy.
ON-SITE AUDIENCE ADVISORY
Our 8-ft. in diameter lanterns were sanitized and disinfected from storage, are physically distanced from each other, and wrapped in protective sheets; we hope spectators to observe the same.
