This Tuesday, Sant Ferran Punt de Lectura reopens with story time from "Jully Papallona"

The Formentera Office of Culture is pleased to announce a story time at 5.00pm on Tuesday 13 September at the Sant Ferran Reading Point (Punt de Lectura). The event is the first cultural activity for children as the Punt de Lectura reopens and local pupils return to classrooms.

Attendees will hear the story of Sofia, a five-year-old girl who does not want to go to bed and asks her mother to recount "Jully Papallona", Sofia's favourite story. The inspiring tale highlights the adventurous and determined spirit of children, as well as love and respect for ancient and ancestral trees. Told by Laura Asensio, who plays an array of characters, the story lasts 45 minutes and is for pupils in year four of primary school and up.

Asensio was born in Barcelona in 1978. With a great passion for theatre, she began her first course in 1999, where she learned techniques in body expression. She developed a great interest in gestural, movement and object theatre, finally opting for clown theatre, which she studied at Berty Tovías' theatre school in Barcelona. In 2004 she took part in the European Theatre Festival, part of Barcelona's Tantaranbana theatre programme, with a troupe known as Papinrom. For five years, she worked in Scotland as a hospital clown with Hearts&Minds and created her own shows, including "The clown & the ring". She also leads puppet-making workshops for parents as a method of interaction with children. Back in her hometown, she taught body expression to the elderly, various workshops for babies and mothers and took part in programmes related to theatre and body expression for people with functional diversity. Currently, she works as an actress at the Granja Escola of Palautordera and travels telling stories and leading workshops at libraries and festivals.
