La mítica banda de rock catalana Brams oferirà un concert amb convidats de luxe a Formentera

El pròxim dissabte 5 de febrer la Sala de Cultura (Cinema) rebrà la mítica banda de rock i ska catalana Brams, que comptarà amb convidats de luxe com ara Gerard Quintana (Sopa de Cabra); el cantautor i exmembre del grup de folk eivissenc UC, Isidor Marí; la històrica formació Aires Formenterencs; els cantautors de la nostra illa Maria José Cardona (Imaràntia) i Genís Campillo (Santgenís), i la rapera valenciana Tesa. "D'aquesta manera, es vol fer extensiu l'homenatge a les tres generacions i a tots els cantautors d'arreu dels territoris de llengua i cultura catalanes", segons han explicat els organitzadors del Festival Barnasants. Aquest és el segon concert dels deu previstos dins el Festival Barnasants i el primer de la programació de l'Illa a Escena d'aquest trimestre.

La consellera de Cultura, Susana Labrador ha explicat que enguany, el Barnasants "ha programat un concert homenatge molt especial, que servirà per donar el tret de sortida a l'edició a Formentera d'aquest certamen de cançó d'autor. Després dels bons resultats de les passades edicions, ens hem tornat a adherir a la proposta de música d'autor del Barnasants per oferir a l'illa una proposta cultural, a més de donar difusió de la realitat cultural de Formentera a la resta del domini lingüístic català", segons ha destacat.

"Baula rere baula"

El recital, titulat "Baula rere baula", és una producció pròpia de Barnasants, amb què es vol homenatjar el grup liderat per Francesc Ribera "Titot" i David Rosell, i amb més de tretze discos a l'esquena, en el 30è aniversari del seu primer disc, com a peça clau generacional entre la Nova Cançó i els grups reivindicatius emergits les darreres dècades.

L'any 1992 Brams publicava el seu primer disc, Amb el rock a la faixa. Varen aparèixer disposats a prendre el relleu de la protesta cantada per fer ballar, pensar i lluitar, aquest esperit combatiu que els va fer néixer es manté encara intacte. Amb el concert proposen un recorregut per les tres dècades de música, història i compromís col·lectius, acompanyats de convidats molt especials que representaran les tres generacions de la cançó d'aquest país: els pares de la Nova Cançó, els germans que varen emergir també en aquell moment, i els fills que avui tenim en el nostre panorama musical.

Intercanvi cultural

Més enllà de la programació a Formentera, l'acord entre el Barnasants i el Consell de Formentera inclou una aposta per a la promoció exterior de les propostes musicals de Formentera. Així, en l'edició 2022, al cantautor formenterer Santgenís (Genís Campillo) presentarà el seu nou àlbum Empelt a Barcelona, València, Mallorca i Menorca dins del marc del festival.

Barnasants celebra aquest any la seva 27a edició i es consolida com el programa de referència de la cançó d'autor de tot Europa i arriba per quart any consecutiu a l'illa de Formentera, gràcies a la renovació del conveni de col·laboració entre el festival i el Consell Insular de Formentera.

A més d'aquest concert, Formentera també gaudirà de la presentació del nou treball discogràfic del cantautor formenterenc Caïm Riba, que hi oferirà un concert l'11 de juny, gràcies a la col·laboració amb l'Obra Cultural Balear de Formentera. Riba serà l'encarregat de tancar l'edició del festival a la nostra illa.

Preus i entrades

El concert de Brams serà el pròxim dissabte 5 de febrer a les 20.30 h a la Sala de Cultura (Cinema), i les entrades ja es poden comprar a través del web www.entradesformentera.cat per un preu de 7 €. Aquest és el primer espectacle que incorpora el preu reduït del 50 % de descompte per a les persones en situació d'atur i autònoms sense activitat, jubilats, menors de 25 anys, famílies monoparentals i famílies nombroses.

L'espectacle es durà a terme aplicant els protocols de seguretat i complint la normativa vigent en cada moment.

Dance, music, theatre and children's shows aplenty with L'Illa a Escena

The Formentera Office of Culture is pleased to present the "L'Illa a Escena" programme of performing arts and music for the coming months of February and March. Susana Labrador, Councillor of Culture and Education, described a lineup of seven dance, music and theatre performances for adults and children that "we are sure the people of Formentera will enjoy". The aim of the initiative is to "promote and encourage cultural programming on the island, support local creations and expand entertainment options for audiences of all stripes", added Councillor Labrador.

February

-On Saturday 5 February islanders can enjoy Catalan group Brams' concert Baula Rere Baula.
In 1992 Brams released their first album, Amb el rock en la faixa; this year's tour marks the 30th anniversary of that release with a journey across three decades of music, history and collective commitment, complete with very special guests representing three generations of Catalan music.

Tomorrow 22 January the festival kicks off in Barcelona. The Formentera concert is the second instalment of the group's special six-date tour for the Barnasants festival of independent music.

The concert starts at 8.30pm in the Sala de Cultura (Cinema).

-The second show is Fils Roulants' Aión. Creator/director Valeria Del Vecchio is joined on stage by Pablo Arias, with, in the background, original sounds from Diego León Arias, for a dance show that presents movement a basic essential. In Aión, which takes place before the advent of kronos, audiences experience a timeless setting in which there is a multitude of possibilities, experimentations, games and fluctuations.

The show starts at 8.30pm on Saturday 12 February in the Sala de Cultura (Cinema).

-Next up is Moskitas Muertas' Ella balla, a piece of musical theatre by composer Xénia Fuertes and choreographer Mireia Sobrevela for ages six and up. In a play that is based on the childhood of choreographer Gillian Lyne, the protagonist, Tea, feels misunderstood by everyone, but soon discovers that inside her hides a great gift: dance! The show invites children and adults to be who they really are.

The show starts at 6.00pm on Saturday 19 February in the Sala de Cultura (Cinema).

-Closing out the calendar in February is Alma en Cuba a Formentera, a jazz concert by Iván "Melón" Lewis (piano) and Ariel Brínguez (saxophone). Two of the most outstanding representatives of music today, Lewis and Brínguez work in symbiosis and offer their personal vision, organically intertwining popular music and chamber music with Cuban accents. Ivan "Melon" Lewis won the 2021 Latin Grammy Awards' Best Latin Jazz Album for Voyager. This concert is presented with the collaboration of Trampolí Mecànic.

The show starts at 8.30pm on Friday 25 February in the Sala de Cultura (Cinema).

March

-In celebration of International Women's Day,  the 8M Concert happens Saturday 5 March. This concert is hosted in collaboration with the Formentera Office of Equality.

On stage will be Marina, from Ojos de Brujo, La Mari from Chambao and Anita Kuruba from Canteca de Macao. These three vocalists represent a generation, they are women with their own voice, they are composers, lyricists and performers. Band leaders for more than a decade, they are part of three well-known groups from the mestizaje ('mixed heritage') music scene.

The concert starts at 8.30pm Saturday 5 March in the Sala de Cultura (Cinema).

-The second show in March is a Teatro Pedro Cañestro production written by Bernat Joan i Marí to celebrate Balearic Islands Day.
Balada de la garsa vella is a comic play featuring a former contortionist, an ageing cabaret singer, a retired actress, a retired amateur actor who lives on his earnings from rental properties, a former successful actor, an enigmatic clown and a pianist. The seven characters gather at a party organised by the guest of honour himself, (former successful actor) Romeu. Everyone will try to give his/her best on stage, and the play serves up a celebration of life through the performing arts.

The show starts at 8.30pm on Saturday 12 March in the Sala de Cultura (Cinema).

-The conclusion of L'Illa a Escena comes Saturday 26 March with Tian Gombau-L'home dibuixat's Sabates noves, an object theater piece and winner of the 2020 Max Award for Best Children's and Family Show.
Penned by Jordi Palet, the play recounts a boy's adventure with his new shoes. As he discovers the world through the landscapes, people and animals around him, the shoes accumulate experience, and the boy grows. This family-friendly play is for viewers three and up.

The show starts at 6.00pm Saturday 26 March in the Sala de Cultura (Cinema).

In 2022, Formentera becomes a fulcrum for theatre once more with the Festival of Children's Entertainment

Today the Formentera Office of Culture presented the fifteenth Festival of Children's Entertainment (Mostra d'Espectàcles Infantils). Organised by Sa Xerxa Children's and Youth Theatre in the Balearic Islands and the Consell de Formentera, the programme will bring four shows to Formentera between 14 and 16 January.

Susana Labrador, Councillor of Culture, described the Festival's focus as "continuing to offer local children and families quality theatre and culture, while supporting the industries of theatre and culture."

The kick-off comes Friday 14 January with two storytelling sessions: Contes per volar ben amunt and El vaixell vermell. Both sessions are the handiwork of Lletra encantada, and co-creator Raquel de Manuel Mur leads each one. Contes per volar ben amunt showcases oral and corporal narration to tell ancient and reinvented stories and songs. Individuals at Formentera's adult day centre can enjoy the approximately 45-minute performance from 11.00am.

El vaixell vermell takes audiences on a journey across an ocean to a magical island. It is a workshop of co-creation, a bonfire around which songs, stories, laughs and illustrated albums are shared. The session features a captain and a group of sailors who boarded a ship and set sail in search of new shores. This all-ages show is free and starts at 5.00pm in the Sant Ferran library connection (Punt de Lectura), with a duration of 45 minutes.

The Festival will continue Saturday 15 January with L'Estaquirot Teatre's L'aventura d'avorrir-se. This puppet show stars Rita, a little girl who, in spite of her many toys, is eternally bored and does not know how to play alone. But one day at grandma's house, with a simple rubber duck, Rita embarks on an adventure over the course of which her imagination will take her to the world of colours, and she will discover surprising characters... Recommended for all audiences, the 50-minute performance will take place at the Sala de Cultura (Cinema) from 6.00pm.

The Festival ends Sunday 16 January with Volen Volen, the breakout dance and circus show by the company Mariantònia Oliver. Dance and circus merge to create a language without words, based on the manipulation of objects and movement. A warm choreographic game that stirs children's emotions and enhances their creativity with balloons evoking the most important moments of childhood. The 35-minute show is recommended for ages three and up, and can be seen at the Sala de Cultura (Cinema) from 6.00pm.

Tickets

Saturday and Sunday performances are priced at 4 €. Tickets can be purchased on entradesformentera.cat where information will be available from Friday 7 January.
 
Due to the exceptional situation stemming from the COVID-19 crisis, admission to the 2022 Festival will be free for unemployed individuals and under-employed freelancers.

The shows will be carried out in accordance with safety protocols and in compliance with current regulations, and functions may be postponed based on the epidemiological situation.

Sa Xerxa
