El pròxim dilluns s’inaugura l’exposició Koinonía, una mostra sobre l’univers femení

rsz cavidadEl Consell de Formentera, a través de l’àrea de Cultura, informa que el pròxim dilluns 20 de novembre s’inaugura a la sala d’exposicions de l’Ajuntament Vell la mostra “Koinonía”, de l’artista val·lisoletana i resident a Eivissa, Isa Sanz, una exposició fotogràfica que forma part del programa d’activitats del Dia Internacional per a l’eliminació de la Violència contra la Dona. La inauguració tindrà lloc a partir de les 20h i comptarà amb la presència de l’artista. És la primera vegada que aquesta obra viatja a la nostra illa.

La col·lecció consta de 17 autoretrats de dones en espais naturals on Isa Sanz, a través de la fotografia com a mitjà principal d’expressió, ens transmet l’emotivitat i la profunditat de l’univers femení d’una forma fins ara no gaire coneguda, i traspassa aquella difícil barrera de dotar la tècnica i l’estudi, del concepte i de la màgia necessària per arribar finalment a l’art.

Tal i com ho defineix la historiadora de l'art Elvira Rilova, “el treball Koinonía d’Isa Sanz posa de manifest la seva proximitat entre la creació artística i una profunda intuïció filosòfica de la realitat, i explora a través d'aquesta sèrie de fotografies la fortalesa femenina, la calma, la integració amb la naturalesa, el color, la sang, l'aigua i la màgia, elements lligats profundament a la construcció del femení".

La sèrie fou realitzada a Eivissa el juny de 2010, l’any que l’artista arriba a l’illa i es va enamorar d’ella després de contemplar una posta de sol des des Vedrà. I és aquí, en aquest entorn on ella sent que es nodreix, que ho té tot al seu abast i on experimenta estar en comunió, a “Koinonía”.

Encara que en principi les imatges d'aquesta sèrie estaven bastant pensades, algunes les va realitzar amb total improvisació. Va sortir a buscar amb la seva càmera i amb els materials alguna cosa amb el que interactuar, i quan ho trobava, es lliurava a experimentar el moment, a sentir el que estava ocorrent, convertint-se així l'escenificació en alguna cosa real, en alguna cosa que estava succeint.

Aquesta exposició compta amb el suport d’ILLENC, l’Institut de la Llengua i la Cultura de les Illes Balars. La mostra romandrà a la sala d’exposicions de l’Ajuntament Vell entre el 20 de novembre i el 2 de desembre. La podeu visitar de dilluns a dissabte d’11 a 14h i de 18 a 20h.

Conversations: Arms, struggle and resistence on Formentera (16th to 20th century)

Xerrada santi colomar mailThis Thursday, November 9 at 8.00pm, historian Santi Colomar will be at Marià Villangómez library to offer a talk titled “Arms, struggle and resistence on Formentera (16th to 20th century)”. The evening will include meditations on the island's function as an observation point and battleground between Ibizans and North African corsairs when stripped of regular inhabitants. On the growth of a local population from the 18th century, and the subsequent formation of militias to confront external dangers. On the 19th century, when disappearing outside perils left the commonplace presence of arms intact. On one exceedingly rare case of bloodshed, a duel at can Damià des Trull in 1919. On the Spanish Civil War and episodes of struggle and resistence on Formentera, namely the strike, organised by the CNT, of workers of the island's salterns during the Second Republic (1936-1939) and popular protests to defend natural spaces like sa Pedrera, or stop outsize projects like es Ca Marí campsite.

'Hilos,' winner of national youth performing arts distinction, comes to cinema

Fotocon-bobinas-2The Formentera Council Office of Culture and Festivities presents Hilos, a stage production for audiences seven and up. The show, which hits Formentera's cinema, la Sala de Cultura, this Saturday, November 11, at 9.00pm, runs sixty minutes. Admission is five euros for adults and three euros for youth under 25. Tickets will be available at the cinema box office the day of the event.

Included in the programme of the Formentera Council-backed Illa a Escena, the production is also part of PLATEA, an effort to spotlight first-class national acts set in motion by INAEM (the Spanish Ministry of Education, Culture and Sport's institute of performing arts and music).

Hilos explores motherly love by riffing on the love between a mother and her newborn. We enter the world bound by an umbilical cord which, though cut at the moment of birth, remains a live wire, tethering the two parts much like an invisible string. The sublime acting of Rosa Díaz is charged with feeling and earned her the FETEN's best female actor prize in 2016.

The troupe
La Rous theatre group was founded in 2008 by Rosa Díaz, actress, director and dramaturge since 1984. Artistic residences abroad exposed her to diverse fields of study and new modes of working, and she gave courses in directing, acting and voice.

World-class prizes like the 2009 FETEN youth theatre festival's award for best production; the 2011 national children and youth theatre award for artistic quality, coherence and originality; awards for best female acting, best stage design, best original score at FETEN 2014 speak to her talent. Now, before Formentera audiences, she presents Hilos, winner of prizes in dramaturgy and acting by a female.

Es Pastorells take ball pagès to Ciutadella

Ball pages la molaThe Formentera Council Office of Culture wishes to announce details of a performance this weekend by local dance troupe Es Pastorells, where they will share a popular island culture with crowds on Menorca.

The company is shipping out for a Saturday demonstration of ball pagès (country dance) in a Ciutadella theatre. Members of folk group Tramuntana have been enlisted to show visiting Es Pastorells dancers the island and some of its customs. The troupe from Menorca will return the favour with a springtime visit to our island.

In an effort to spread culture within the Balearic region, the Formentera Council financed Es Pastorells' travel costs for the engagement, which came to €2,216.

Upgrades at municipal cinema

Foto cinema sala de culturaThe Formentera Council wishes to announce that, due to scheduled upgrades, film showings this Friday (November 3) and Sunday (November 5) at the island's cinema have been cancelled.

The Sala de Cultura (literally, “hall of culture”) will remain closed October 31 to November 10, during which time crews, in addition to performing repairs of the stage, puttying and repainting of inside walls and maintenance of outdoor wooden structures, will apply a material to prevent slips on floors, replace a wooden door, switch out indoor lighting and repair the lighting for the cinema's outdoor sign.

The cost of upgrades is €10,591 (VAT included), though some work, such as on lighting, will be overseen by Council work crews.

Education and culture secretary Susana Labrador offered apologies for any inconveniences caused by the closure. She described the upgrades part of a promise made by the administration's senior councillors and the PSOE to “equip the cinema for current needs and improve the quality of life for those island residents that use it”.

More improvements
In recent months other upgrades have also sought to achieve the same. Single-pane glass in the cinema's windows was replaced with double-paned equivalents in an effort to better the building's insulation. The price tag for those improvements was €480, VAT included. For security reasons, a wooden door on the side of the cinema was upgraded with an aluminium replacement, an operation which cost €740 (VAT included). Crews also coated the projection room door with sheet metal and repaired a side emergency exit door.

Lastly, the cinema received a new air-conditioning unit, which cost €15,173 (VAT included).
