Local Music Festival

May 29, 2017
BGC Arts Center Festival
Fabulous BGC Arts Center Festival  – aka BGC Loves Local – brings together established and emerging Filipino actors, dancers, musicians, poets, painters, sculptors, and craftspeople in a fun-filled, family-friendly celebration of the country’s artistry.
Held over Independence Day weekend (10-11 June) in Bonifacio Global City, this gathering features dance, plays, music, installations, workshops, storytelling, improv, and an art mart (selling local arts and crafts). 2017’s theme is ‘revealing the beauty and reach of homegrown talent and creativity’.
Enjoy both free and ticketed performances indoors or out at this vibrant cultural district. The Globe Auditorium at Maybank Performing Arts Theater will host My Name Is Asher Lev by Twin Bill Theater (2pm & 4.30pm Sat), a play about a painter; and the Philippine Opera Company’s Filipino music showcase Harana – A Cultural Journey (8pm Sat). 

Children will enjoy fairytale musical Cinderella by Kids Acts (9am Sat); adults will love Passages – Dance Artists in Flight (10am Sun); and hip types should catch Independent by Stages Sessions, starring local musicians including rapper Curtismith, contempo-folk singer-songwriter Bullet Dumas, funk-soulster Gio Levy, and rock trio Tom’s Story (9-11pm Sun).
At other venues check out Only We Know: Stories of Siblinghood by Theater 2108, at Zobel De Ayala Recital Hall (2pm Sat), Philippine Street Dance Community at Sun Life Amphitheater (3-10pm Sat), and BGC Art Mart at Alveo Central Plaza (all day Sat-Sun), among other treats. All Pinoy. All Great.
