‘Nube Nube’, a family puppet show about love, sweeps into Pine Islands!

cartell 2021 nubenubeSaturday 2 October on Formentera (and a day later in the Ibizan town of Jésus), puppet fans can catch “Nube Nube”, a poetic play by Periferia Teatro about the idea of romantic love that we’re taught as young children. Inspired by the story of “The Little Mermaid”, the troupe humourously and tenderly remind us of everything we do to help others, to love and be loved; and how sometimes, love makes us forget who we are. Featuring a mixture of live-action acting and puppetry, the family-friendly production is appropriate for children aged four and up.

Still a newcomer on the scene, “Nube Nube” has already been honoured with Feten 2020’s Best Puppet Show award, the Golden Dragon Award for Best Children’s Production at the Lleida Fira de Teatre de Titelles 2021 and the Children's Jury Award for Best Production at the 33rd Festitíteres in Alacant (2020).

Formentera audiences can catch a 6.00pm showing of the production on Saturday 2 October in the Sala de Cultura (Cinema). Tickets can be purchased for €4 from tomorrow Friday 24 September at www.entradesformentera.cat, with free admission for the unemployed and underemployed freelancers. “Nube Nube” is the first show of the autumn ‘L'Illa a Escena’, which is organised by the Formentera Office of Culture. The performance at the Jesús Cultural Centre in the municipality of Santa Eulària des Riu will take place Sunday 3 October, also at 6.00pm. Advance bookings can be made for €8 plus booking fee through the website www.festivalbarruguet.com, or for €10 at the box office an hour before the show.

Productions will be staged in accordance with public health protocols and in compliance with current regulations.

The troupe
Periferia Teatro have been working professionally with puppets, crafting and sharing stories, since 1989. Time has vindicated their efforts, for they have demonstrated that the art of puppetry isn’t just alive and kicking, but that it’s also one of the shortest routes to the soul of spectators — whether children or their adult chaperones.

Fortune has shined on Periferia Teatro in recent years, and the troupe has brought original productions like “Pingüin”, “Pocosueño”, “Guyi-Guyi”, “Huellas” and “Vuelapluma” to the top Spanish children’s theatre programmes, not to mention logged appearances in numerous international festivals. The company has also received numerous awards, as well as grants from the National Institute of Performing Arts and Music (INAEM), the Spanish Agency for International Development Cooperation (AECID), Instituto Cervantes and the Institute for Cultural Industries and the Arts (ICA) of Murcia, which have helped cement the company’s place on the performing arts scene and raise their profile.

Consell d'Entitats discusses plans for anchorage scheme at S’Estany des Peix

foto 2021 consell entitats fondejosThe Consell d'Entitats held a one-off session yesterday afternoon to discuss plans to regulate anchored watercraft in S'Estany des Peix. The meeting was chaired by President Alejandra Ferrer; attended by Director-General of the Balearic Office of Natural Spaces and Biodiversity Llorenç Mas and Formentera’s Councillor of Environment Antonio J. Sanz, and conducted by Councillor of Citizen Participation Vanessa Parellada. Among the nearly two hundred attendees were normal islanders, spokespeople from 24 Consell d’Entitats member associations and political party representatives.

Pointing to what she termed “the long-standing unsustainability” of the situation at S’Estany des Peix, President Ferrer insisted the island’s government was committed to “a regulatory model that strikes a balance between traditional anchoring needs and protection of a unique natural space”. Ferrer offered a message that was of both calmness and confidence, affirming, “The political will is to defend the general public interest and ensure that people can continue to enjoy S’Estany des Peix in an orderly and sustainable manner while respecting the traditions and cultural heritage with which the pond is associated.

The President said that apart from regulated anchorage, “other interrelated aspects demand our efforts as well, including a public anchorage spot in the port and a new dry marina and ramps”, insisting, “These and other actions will ensure that the people of Formentera can continue to enjoy access to the sea”. Ferrer also spoke about the need to study options “for the logistics and commercial side of things, as we have also conveyed to the Balearic Port Authority”.

15 days to offer suggestions for rules of use

Councillor Antonio J. Sanz detailed the progress made since March 2019. “Right now we are in the process of drafting regulations for the rules of use and the session brought some very interesting remarks and expressions of concern. We explained how residents can register their comments online through the Virtual Citizen Information Office (OVAC) and in person at the Citizen Information Office (OAC) and that they have 15 days to present their contributions and suggestions to shape these regulations”. The session also featured talk about the possible criteria for the tendering process, which Sanz assured would “comply with current regulations and be sound from an environmental and historical standpoint”. “Let’s not forget that these plans were borne out of the need to recover a natural space which is facing a high degree of degradation”, the Councillor reasoned. Interested parties can find out more on the Consell de Formentera website.

For his part, Director-General Mas asserted he was confident an agreement could be reached to “satisfactorily organise this protected natural space”. He added that “progress regulating the use of marine areas is essential in times of climate emergency to preserve our most valuable habitats and species”.
