Formentera prepares for family-friendly clown show “Tatanka”

foto tatanka 1The Formentera Council office of culture announces that at 6.00pm on Saturday December 29, the local cinema (Sala de Cultura) will host Minúcia theatre company's family-friendly Tatanka. Admission to the hour-long show is three euros.

Mostra d'Espectacles Infantils
Tatanka is the opening act of Formentera's twelfth “Children's Theatre Festival” (Mostra d'Espectacles Infantils), set to conclude January 20. The Mostra is put together by the promoter of children's and youth theatre initiatives in the Balearics, Sa Xerxa, and the Formentera Council, with additional support provided by Institut d'Estudis Baleàrics and Trasmapi. The show is likewise included under the umbrella of the Council's L'Illa a Escena theatre series.

Culture councillor Susana Labrador described the goal behind hosting productions like Tatanka and broader initiatives like the Mostra as “getting families to the theatre and bolstering the island's winter and holiday offering of cultural fare”.

Just as Alice found Wonderland while following the trail of a white rabbit, Suli and Munyaku, too, are themselves transported to a magical, exotic and strange world.

There, they discover a new way of seeing things that will seem strange at first. But the pair will slowly start to find the philosophy of North American indians—it's not what you've got, but who you are—compelling. Will the valient duo ever want to go home?

Directed by Montse Bonet and featuring the acting of Anselm Serra and Jordi Pérez, Tatanka offers a sampling of North American indian culture and civilisation. In that regard, Bonet describes the goal as “showing audiences other ways of speaking, eating and relating to others”.
