Presenting "Pau: El valor de la vida als nostres dies"

The Office of Culture of the Consell de Formentera is pleased to announce that it has programmed a presentation of Pau: El valor de la vida als nostres dies at Marià Villangómez Library, Friday 10 March, at 7.30pm. The presentation will be given by the author, Jordi Armadans Gil.

Armadans, one of the most respected experts in international conflict and peace activists in the country, is a political scientist and journalist as well as an analyst and trainer in conflict, peace and security. He has worked as director of Foundation for Peace and has been linked to various NGOs, campaigns and social movements for the culture of peace, human rights, solidarity and global justice.

His first book, articulated concisely and lucidly, comes packed with the most recent data which Armadans distils into a critical and current reading of the state of global conflict, and urges us to respond with coherence and responsibility to put people back at the centre of our priorities. As the author explains, "on paper, peace, justice and human rights are indisputable values of democratic societies, but we live in a world shaken by multiple forms of violence: wars, militarism, hunger, poverty, male chauvinism, racism, abuse of power, the arms race, climate emergency... What distorted logic leads our leaders to espouse a will to improve society, when at the same time they allow (if not directly activate) mechanisms of death and misery?" These are some of the issues that will be addressed and discussed at the presentation.

Can you imagine witnessing the birth of Planet Earth and sharing it with your baby? Embark on this moving journey with "Baby Esferic", the latest instalment of L'Illa a Escena 2023

The Office of Culture of the Consell de Formentera is pleased to report that Aboon Teatre will present Baby Esferic, a silent production expressing emotions through shapes and lights, at the Sala de Cultura (Cinema) from 6.00pm on Saturday 11 March. This 45-minute play is intended for children between six-months- and four-years-old, as well as their guardians. Through various stories and landscapes, this homage to the Earth speaks of the magic that ties us to the planet and its inhabitants. With immensely visual language, a white sphere is the main character that will be transformed into varying friendly animals. The aesthetic, minimalist and delicately visual, lets viewers' imagination run free.

As the troupe explains, Baby Esferic "awakens the imaginations of adults and children alike. We make the child's experience accessible to adults and create a harmonious space between these two realities."

Next Thursday, 9 March, 'Cuentos desenvueltos' at Sant Ferran Reading Spot

The Office of Culture of Consell de Formentera is pleased to report that at 5.00pm, next Thursday 9 March, Laura Mandarina will perform "Cuentos desenvueltos", the second instalment of a storytelling series organised jointly with La Panera Vermella, at the Reading Spot (Punt de Lectura) in the Espai Cultural de Sant Ferran. This event is geared toward children aged 3 to 12.

The books that make up the educational part of "Cuentos desenvueltos" have been chosen for their significance in the lives of children, copies sold and psychological and emotional characteristics, physical attributes and roles of characters, as well as symbolism promoting gender equality, as the author explains.

Some of the titles mentioned are: "El príncipe Serafín" by Raquel Diez, "Yo voy Conmigo" by Raquel Díaz Reguera, "Las princesas también se echan pedos" by Illan Brennann and "Daniela Pirata" by Susana Isern Gómez. The common thread of the session is children's participatory comical magic, namely, through various magic tricks in which children will participate, the titles of the stories that will be told afterwards will appear.

The second storyteller in the series is Laura Muñoz, an actress who graduated from the Buenos Aires' Dramatic Art Conservatory in 1996.  She participated in several plays in the Argentine capital and, in 2002, travelled to Spain, where in 2005 she founded her own theatre company called MundoMandarina, where she creates, produces and performs her own shows. She has also collaborated with the "Clowns in rebellion" and "Clowns without borders" expeditions. Currently, she writes stories and teaches storytelling, magic, clown and laughter therapy workshops.

Artist Susana Cardona recalls a forgotten past with 'Terra' exhibition at Ajuntament Vell

The Office of Culture of the Consell de Formentera is pleased to report that from 7 to 18 March the Sala d'Exposicions "Ajuntament Vell" will host artist Susana Cardona's exhibition "Terra". In this exhibition the artist shares her paintings of the figures that populated her childhood, as well as her memories of the styles and values of the countryside. The opening will take place on Monday 6 March at 7.00pm.

In the artist's words, "I am fascinated by everyday activities, and render this gaze conscious through my paintings. It is a way to mark ourselves as individuals from Eivissa and Formentera with a past that we must respect, admire and understand."

The artist, born on Formentera in the early eighties, affirms that her memories in Sant Ferran marked her personality indelibly. With the help of several painting courses she developed this passion where she learned and developed to use India ink. She also describes her discovery of the paintings of Ibizan Antoni "Portmany" Marí Ribas as "crucial", particularly his representation of the women of the Ibizan countryside who, she says, "have come to my heart and have come to stay."

Cardona has displayed work in the parish hall of Sant Ferran, and on Eivissa, in Sant Agustí's Sala de Cultura Can Curt and Es Cubells municipal gallery.

The exhibition will open on Monday 6 March at 7.00pm. The collections can be visited 11.00am to 2.00pm and 6.00pm to 8.00pm, Monday to Saturday, 7 to 18 March at the Sala d'Exposicions "Ajuntament Vell". The space will be closed on Sundays, holidays and Monday mornings.
