“Vida”, a puppet show for kids 10 and up (and families)

vida-foto-premsa1The Formentera Council's culture bureau reports that Saturday February 23 from 6.00pm children ages ten and over at the Sala de Cultura (Cinema) can see Javier Aranda's production of Vida, a puppet show that combines heart-felt scenes with sophisticated wit.

Culture councillor Susana Labrador encouraged local parents to come see the spectacle with their children. “Our eyes were on this production from the start because it's for families”, she said. “Young and old—audiences are sure to love it”.

According to a representative of Javier Aranda, Vida is about “life—from birth to death, of the forward march of life and the years. How the ties that bind parents and children change over time. The show also focuses on two people—how they fall in love and have a son, and how he leaves home and leaves the pair to grow old together”.

To here those in the company tell it, there's something very special in the knowing gaze shared between creator and creation—the ever-present relationship between puppeteer and puppet.

Award-winning production
The show has earned accolades from Huesca's international theatre festival (Best show), Feten (Best small-format show), Lleida's puppet festival (Best show) and others.
