Mouffe's “A las cinco de la tarde” prepares for landing at can Senieta

michelmouffe-1-The Formentera Council department of culture reports that at 5.00pm on May 4, Belgian painter Michel Mouffe will pull back the curtain on his latest exhibit, A las cinco de la tarde. On view at Sant Francesc's can Senieta until August 17, the show will open Monday to Saturday from 5.00pm to 8.00pm in May and 6.00pm to 9.00pm from June to August.

The exhibit includes twenty abstract paintings whose range of subjects includes the islanders who were shot down by Franco supporters. Mouffe, born in Brussels in 1957 and residing between la Mola, Belgium and France, is represented by Axel Vervoordt Gallery of Belgium and Hong Kong.

The exhibit will settle in at can Senieta, a Council-owned space currently on loan to the Govern balear. Mouffe asked the Govern to host his show before the traditional ranch home was remodelled into the future headquarters of the Museu de Formentera. The show is being presented by the Formentera Council and the culture, participation and sports ministry of the Govern balear.

Giorgio Conte and Joan Isaac salute Mediterranean with free concert Saturday at cinema

giorgio-conte-joan-isaac1The Formentera Council office of culture reports that Saturday April 13 at 8.30pm the cinema will host a free concert with Joan Isaac and Giorgio Conte. The show marks the close of the Barnasants cultural initiative's 2019 Formentera programme, part of an artistic partnership with the Formentera Council.

With Dues cultures, un sol mar, singer-songwriters Isaac (who is Catalan) and Conte (who is Italian) invite us into their world of friendship and mutual admiration. It's an admiration that led them to dream up and bring to life an evening of signature music where singing duties aren't the only thing alternating: languages will be switched up, too. Conte's Italian-language singing will trade jabs with Issac's Catalan-language fare in a style that organisers say is not wholly unlike the negotiating banter of Venice merchants. Their performance on Formentera is a way for the singers to pay tribute to the sea that unites the pair's music.

Singing workshop

From 5.30pm to 7.00pm on Friday April 12, Isaac and pianist Antoni Olaf Sabater will offer students of the music and dance school and the Eivissa-Formentera conservatory a clinic on singing. Taking place in the music and dance school and made possible thanks to collaboration between Barnasants and Plataforma per la Llengua, the event is aimed at fortifying a “cultural network” in Catalan-speaking territories through concert-related activities.

Saturday's concert announces the end of the Council and Barnasants' first joint initiative, one which saw a local performance from Roger Mas and Estel Solé on February 16 and a performance at Barcelona's Harlem Jazz Club by local act Maria José Cardona (February 7). The full programme can be found at www.barnasants.com.
