In partnership with the Cebu Metropolitan Cathedral, Casa Gorordo Museum brought a religious devotional experience for all Cebuano’s Semana Santa last April 5, 2023, 7 PM – 9 PM at the Cebu Metropolitan Cathedral Grounds. Semana Santa: Living Sculpture – The 14 Stations of the Cross is a performance art and devotion brought to you by our performers from the Safespace Association, reenacting the 14 Stations of the Cross through the living sculpture.
Celebrating the 40th anniversary of Casa Gorordo being a public museum, Casa Gorordo Museum not only celebrates the Semana Santa house tradition through the family’s old collection of religious floats called the “pasos” and “carrozas” being used for processions in the downtown area for the Holy Week.
They added a new attraction in the form of performance and prayer called, The Living Sculpture. “This Semana Santa is exciting. Our staff has been working hard to make this a Semana Santa experience devotees won’t forget.” Florencio Moreno II, the Culture and Heritage Unit Program Director for RAFI added.
The churchgoers at the Metropolitan Cathedral church applauded and gave praise to the immersive performance during the performance night. “We thank Casa Gorordo for bringing this reflective show to us. This is not just a show for entertainment. It is art and prayer combined.”, said Rev. Fr. Glenn Therese Guanzon of the performance.
