Blai Bonet and family-friendly theatre crown first six-month phase of L'Illa a Escena 2018

Foto fila cordafil redux circ acrobatesThis weekend, Formentera's Office of Culture welcomes to the island the two stage shows which will close out the first half of L'Illa a Escena 2018.

Blai Bonet
Dedicated to Majorcan poet and artist Blai Bonet, this series —with its conference, stage production and documentary inspired by the artist's dramaturgical side— will be performed on all four of the Balearic Islands.

The inaugural event on Formentera takes place at 8.00pm on Friday, April 13 in the CiF culture department's Sala d'Actes. In an evening moderated by Joan Tomàs Martínez, a professor at ESADIB and doctor of performing arts from Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona, attendees will learn about Blai Bonet, the artist's poetic side, and just what secured his inclusion in the history books as an out and out genius.

At 8.30pm on Saturday, April 14, the cinema will again offer up its stage, this time for a performance of Oficis al carrer. As a primary school student in 1985, Bonet penned the short piece as a year-end assignment while attending the Col·legi Bisbe Verger.

Director Jeroni Obrador of Tshock Cultura Emocional has managed to reunite the original 1985 cast 33 years after the show's première. For further insight into Bonet as a playwright, audience members can stick around after the show for a screening of the documentary El teatre de Blai Bonet.

The evening is all-ages appropriate and free to attend. Attendees will come away with a complementary DVD.

Family-friendly theatre
On Sunday, April 15, bring the whole family for a production that spans theatre, dance and circus. In Minorcan troupe s'Espai de Circ's El Viatge d'en Filo Cordafil, Filo and his stringy friends invite us on a journey packed with humour and fantasy, where all manner of objects transmogrify into improbable characters and draw us deeper and deeper into Filo's imagination.

Scheduled for 5.00pm on Sunday in the cinema (Sala de Cultura), the 55-minute show costs €3. Tickets are available at the box office the day of the function.
