CCP Now Offers Virtual Guided Tours
There’s a new way for people to visit the Cultural Center of the Philippines: through their virtual guided tours.
As a response to the quarantine restrictions required by the pandemic, the virtual building and theater tour package was developed to provide online art education and cultural content for everyone. Launched last February during the *Pasinaya 2022*, the tour is a project of the CCP Venue Operations Division (Production and Exhibition Department).
The interactive 360 and/or 180-degree guided virtual tour, facilitated via Zoom, takes visitors inside the CCP theaters, spaces, and other facilities, including the newly-built Tanghalang Ignacio Gimenez (CCP Black Box Theater).
Visitors can admire the interiors of the Tanghalang Nicanor Abelardo (CCP Main Theater), with its famous stage tapestry “Genesis” based on an artwork of National Artist H.R. Ocampo. They can also head to the Tanghalang Aurelio Tolentino (CCP Little Theater) and the Tanghalang Huseng Batute (CCP Studio Theater) and even take a glimpse behind the stage.
The 30-to-45-minute tour utilizes high-resolution photography, simulating the experience of walking through every corner of the artistic spaces. This digital simulation used over 2916 photos with 489 panoramas and 8 aerial shots to create an immersive environment.
The guided tour is interactive and guests may ask the tour guide questions about the building. There are also embedded videos of the Visual Arts & Museum Division’s CCP Cultural Cache Online episodes and audio descriptions of the CCP visual arts collection displayed across various areas of the building.
There are Q & A sessions after every tour for those who want to learn more about the building’s history and other trivia.
