Francisca Ferrer’s collection of tapestries on view at Centre Antoni Tur ‘Gabrielet’

cartell 2021 francisca ferrerSant Ferran resident Francisca Ferrer Ferrer will be showing her tapestry collection at the Centre Antoni Tur ‘Gabrielet’ from Monday 19 July.

Born on Formentera, Francisca developed her interest in fabrics while running a clothing and accessories shop on the island from 1994 to 2017. Shortly before entering lockdown, she began to machine- and hand-sew nature-themed tapestries, slowly incorporating more general themes like landscapes and traditional local architecture.

The exhibition will be on display 19–25 July from 11.00am to 2.00pm and 7.00pm to 10.00pm.

Clara Peya to perform for Sant Jaume

cartell 2021 clara peyaThe Formentera Department of Culture is pleased to report that Sunday 25 July, Clara Peya will offer a unique concert to islanders in support of her eleventh album, Perifèria. The performance is part of the Formentera Diada celebrations for Sant Jaume (St James).

Clara Peya is considered one of the most prolific and transgressive pianists in Spain. She has also been described as energy and feeling in their purest form. With the piano her unfailing centre of gravity for composing songs, onlookers describe her artistic personality contagious and torrential. In concerts, she strips herself bare, transforming herself and holding the audience in rapt attention.

A tireless activist and fighter, she received the 2019 National Culture Award for her musical career and social commitment. Peya’s CV is as impressive as her music is unclassifiable. Restless, visceral and transcendent, she eschews clichés and believes in the power of art as a tool for social change.

In 2007 Peya completed undergraduate studies in classical piano at the Catalonia College of Music (Escola Superior de Música de Catalunya, ESMUC) before studying jazz and modern music at Barcelona’s Taller de Músics. At 32, she has released eight albums under her own name and collaborated with celebrated musicians. She is also the co-founder of Les Impuxibles, a theatre, dance and live music company, and has composed several pieces of music for theatre and dance performances.

The free, limited-seating concert starts at 10.00pm on St James’ Day (Sunday 25 July) in the courtyard of Sa Senieta. Tickets are available at www.entradesformentera.cat.

Ramon Mirabet returns to Formentera for Sant Jaume

cartell 2021 ramon mirabetThe Formentera Department of Culture is pleased to announce that nearly three years after his first concert on Formentera, Ramon Mirabet and his band of musicians are back on the island to present their latest album Begin Again in a concert included in this year’s programme for the feast day of Sant Jaume (St James).

As a creator, producer and spectacular performer, Mirabet takes the crowd to a world where the epic meets simplicity, and where nothing falls by the wayside. New sounds from new songs cut straight to the epicentre of rock, the very core of our dancing genes and the very root of tenderness.

With Begin Again, Ramon Mirabet continues to prove that his is not a conventional career. That he’s not unwilling to watch the current as it ebbs from the shore and that his voice remains without parallel.

“Begin Again”
Begin Again is an album splintered by the patience that it takes to make anything one can feel satisfied with. A visceral album made in colliding with the walls of time, inspiration and pressure. Ramon Mirabet knew this album would be the best he wanted to make at this precise moment and that nothing and no one would change his plans. The songs on Begin Again are written from a place of love and from the positive anger that stirs us to abandon grudges, from the sights and experiences of travel, from well-fitting friendships and from the conviction that starting over doesn’t mean taking a single step backwards.

The free, limited-seating concert will take place at 10.00pm on Saturday 24 July in the courtyard of the Sant Ferran schools. Tickets are available at www.entradesformentera.cat.

‘Isla’ is family theatre that 'transcends limits'

foto 2021 islaThe Formentera Department of Culture is pleased to announce that Monday 19 July, the D’Click theatre company will regale local audiences with “Isla”, a family show about the dreams (and hallucinations) of three shipwrecked characters whose only hope lies in one another.

In a story that reflects on the wisdom of seeking refuge at sea and capsizing on an island, the characters of “Isla” overcome the limits of their island in unlikely situations and with the strangest of strategies. Based on an earlier study of body and movement in which circus-esque devices like acrobatics and the Chinese pole function as performative languages, the show is a reminder of the thin line between physical theatre and dance, circus and risk, magic and dream.

“Isla” won Aragon’s Performing Arts Revelation Award in 2016 and the Best Circus Show award the following year. It also won first prize at the 2017 Noctívagos street theatre competition and the Circada Award in 2019.

The troupe
Since 2010, D’Click have believed that the best way to emotionally engage a crowd is through an intermingling of distinct classes of performing arts. The company has performed at national and international festivals like Umore Azoka Festival, Trayectos Danza Festival, Festival de Tàrrega, Villarreal Festival, TAC Festival (Valladolid), FITICH Festival (Chile), Ovar Festival (Portugal), Pirineos Sur Festival, International Performing Arts Festival of Querétaro Mexico and more.

Tickets to the limited-seating production in the Marc Ferrer Secondary School courtyard are available at
www.entradesformentera.cat. The show starts at 7.30pm and is part of 2021 Sant Jaume programme.
