The event also highlights Power Mac Center’s meaningful partnership with Ayala Land Inc., the Power Mac Center Spotlight. Located at the heart of Circuit Makati, the black box theater has a capacity of 300 seats and flexible seating set – up and lights and sounds equipment designed to provide a venue for interactive, dynamic, fresh, and innovative performances.
Power Mac Center Spotlight can accommodate theater, music, dance performances, acting workshops, as well as seminars, corporate launches and private functions. It will bring new and diverse opportunities to promote not only the arts but talented Filipino artists as well.
