MANILA, Philippines - Art bridged the gap between two different cultures at Pasinaya 2013 last February 3 at the Cultural Center of the Philippines.
The CCP tradition paid tribute to the contribution of Chinese Filipinos in Philippine arts and culture.
“We are very happy that, this year, the CCP chose to focus on 'Tsinoy' arts and culture. Everyone is in Chinese garb while Filipino music plays in the background," said Meah Ang Sy, director of Bahay Tsinoy museum.
Students from the Ling Nam Athletic Federation began the day with a traditional Lion Dance. A feast of visual arts, music, film, and theater followed — along with workshops — with around 3,000 artists participating.
"Pasinaya," a term which means "debut," is the CCP’s annual multi-arts festival which gives students and arts enthusiasts a sneak peek into the performances of CCP's resident companies in 2013.
These resident companies are the:
- UST Symphony Orchestra
- Ballet Philippines
- Philippine Ballet Theater
- Philippine Madrigal Singers
- Philippine Philharmonic Orchestra
- Bayanihan Philippine National Folk Dance Company
- Ramon Obusan Folkloric Group
- Winners of the National Music Competition for Young Artists (NAMCYA)
