Why You Should Hit Up BGC’s Light Festival, “Boni Viva Luci”

Experience BGC in a new and different way



For as long as I can remember, BGC has been the place to be. Whether it’s an office to go to everyday or a hotspot to hit up after the work hours, BGC continues to offer some of the best places to experience. But more than its brick and mortar shops, stores and restaurants, the place is constantly changing up on itself—whether that means new graffiti art to pose in front of, new installations to mesmerize at or, most recently, an entirely new experience as BGC holds its light festival, Boni Viva Luci.

Curated and co-presented by the Bonifacio Art Foundation, Inc. (BAFI) with Bonifacio High Street (BHS), Bonifacio Global City (BGC) and supported by Metrobank, Boni Viva Luci is anchored on the theme of “natural life echoed in light.” The entire experience features new and reimagined public artwork that are elevated through various light installments—and yes, it’s free to enjoy. 


The nine-day festival, which concludes on April 14, includes a lit version of creatures by Pippet Theater Manila’s Indigenous Wildlife Puppets featuring 12 larger-than-life Philippine Endemic Species, LuminiSense: Our Place in the Cosmos by Joyce Sahagun Garcia, Ohm David and Arvy Dimculangan. Also included in the lineup are Olivia D’Aboville’s Giant Dandelions, Winter David and Ohm David’s The Abyss and Ohm David and Mark Choa’s Reimagined Chandeliers


We’re not through yet. BGC goers will also get to experience the mythical creatures of Cheska Carativo’s Entanglement: Adarna to Bakunawa on the Glass Bridge, Leeroy New’s Mebuyan Cradle that features an unconventional portrayal of the goddess of fertility and death, and Into the Shadows and Heroes, which illustrates shadow play projects, from Sigmund Pecho, Ohm David and Army Dimaculangan. 


Meanwhile, featured on BGC’s LED screens are the creations of Isaiah Cacnio and Joyce Sahagun Garcia though Celestial Waltz and Behold the Eclipse, Behold the Light, both of which allow its audience to see the artists’ take on nature. Adding to this are photographs taken of natural life by Camera Club of the Philippines members Fred del Rosario, Chito Viñas and Mark Bautista. 


And if you’re just looking for a calming stroll, visit the Purple Terra, where the trees are full of bright purple lights to help illuminate the night sky.
