"Ara jo/Ahora yo", Valencian Ana Alonso Cantos's photo exhibition on social and gender violence

For International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women, next Monday 22 November at 6.00pm in the Sala d'Exposicions "Ajuntament Vell", the Valencia-born and Formentera-based Ana Alonso Cantos will pull the curtain back on "Ara jo/Ahora yo", a photography exhibition.

Alonso says a fashion photo shoot was the catalyst that roused "some concerns [she] had been carrying inside for a long time". The artist describes what ensued as "a struggle over gender-based abuse and the ideas I received at home about the role of justice in all of it".

Alonso says the project was born "from the need to express my concerns and experiences about social and gender violence, and to add a critical voice to this struggle in which everyone must start participating".

The subtle look that Alonso offers in the show succeeds in representing the rawest of her personal experiences, "so similar or equal to those of so many other women," she asserts.

"Ara jo/Ahora yo" is on display from 23 November to 4 December 2021, Monday to Saturday from 11.00am to 2.00pm and from 6.00pm to 8.00pm; the gallery is closed on Sundays and Monday mornings.


Ana Alonso Cantos is from Valencia and has lived on Formentera for five years. She studied artistic photography from 2010 to 2013 at the School of Art of Design of Valencia. Since then she has worked as a press photographer at Polytechnic University of Valencia, D.O. València and Xúquer hydrographic, and as an event photographer. Alonso additionally studied dramatic art and has collaborated in a host of fields, including but not limited to event presentations, on radio and TV series and as an extra in feature and short films.

Formentera audiences gear up for Guillem Clua's breakout "Smiley: Una història d'amor"

From 8.30pm next Saturday 27 November, the crowd at Formentera's Sala de Cultura (Cinema) will experience a love story with a capital 'L'. “Smiley: Una història d'amor" offers a lighthearted account of the fears we face when we fall in love.

The production explores the mark left on our lives by new technologies, WhatsApp and smart-phones, while accurately dissecting the contradictions of emotional relationships. It shows us that, in the game of love, we are all equally vulnerable.

According to Japanese legend, when two people are destined to be together, an invisible red thread tied to their little finger binds them from the day they are born. This thread is unbreakable and has the power to keep two people together forever, no matter how far apart they are or how different they may appear. This is the premise on which Smiley is based. It is also a tribute to the classic romantic comedies, from figures like Nora Ephron and Howard Hawks. Smiley is all this and much more, but especially, it is a hymn to love in all its forms.

The comedy is directed by Joan M. Albinyana and features Héctor Seoane and Joan Toni Sunyer. The Association of Public Theatres of the Balearic Islands (ATAPIB) awarded both Seoane and Sunyer with the award for Best Performance by a Male Actor. The production has had a great impact on adult and young audiences.

It is recommended for all audiences. The show can be seen at 8.30pm on Saturday 27 November in Formentera's Sala de Cultura (Cinema). Tickets are priced at €7 (€5 for under 25s) and go on sale Friday 19 November at www.entradesformentera.cat. Admission is free for unemployed people and currently under-employed freelancers.

El Somni Productions

Joan Porcel started El Somni Productions, a theatre production company, in March 2012. The backdrop of crisis has done nothing to dilute the desire for committed and high-quality text-driven theatre. The troupe performs its catalogue, from adapted classics to contemporary productions, in theatres as well as alternative venues and non-conventional spaces.

'Up close and personal' underpins the El Somni philosophy. The company firmly believes that the foremost virtue in theatre is knowing how to adapt to one's environment to ensure the broadest reach for one's message.

Cultural support

“Smiley: Una història d'amor" receives support from Institut d'Estudis Baleàrics. Safety protocol and current regulations will be in place at the functions.
