For Queer October, Formentera welcomes the visual theatre of "Imaginaris monstruosos"

The Formentera Office of Culture is pleased to announce that Saturday 22 October at 8.30pm, the Sala de Cultura-Cinema will welcome Imaginaris monstruosos, part of the activities bill that the Formentera Office of Equality has put together for October Queer (Octubre Queer) on International Day for Trans Depathologisation.

Imaginaris monstruosos, a piece of youth and adult visual theatre with puppets, innovation and transgression, places the margins at the centre. In line with the symbolic language of the production, the text is brief and poetic. The troupe says the show "invites audiences to travel from the uncertainty of the darkness of the beast to the tenderness that emerges when we acknowledge our vulnerability".

La Lioparda Teatre describe the underpinnings of the production as "the monster that we lock inside to conform to the values of our culture". Behind this unconscious belief, they say, is the idea that if "we show our defects, we will suffer the rejection of those we love or society at large". Hence, at the core of the scenic conceit is the fear of discovery and the shame around being unreal.

La Lioparda Teatre
The starting points of every LTT production are physical theatre, dance, object manipulation, masks and puppets. Audiences hail shows' critical and feminist nature and questioning of social models, power, oppressions and human relationships. Works revolve around gender and sexuality, whether that involves the body, a questioning of the gender binary or lesbian, trans and dissident visibilities.

Moreover, the troupe do more than perform, they lead workshops and trainings, and treat theatre as a means of social transformation in which the body is the protagonist of the subjectivities it represents.

Tickets cost €7 and are available on www.entradesformentera.cat. Unemployed individuals, under-employed freelancers, retirees, under-25s, people with functional diversity, and single-parent families and large families pay half price.

Artistic calligraphy workshop for children

The Formentera Office of Culture is pleased to announce that Libraries of Formentera have scheduled an artistic calligraphy workshop for children at 5.00pm, Monday 17 October, at the Sant Ferran Reading Spot (Punt de Lectura). The workshop will be given by writer-calligrapher Maria Vila Rebolo.

What is artistic calligraphy?
Artistic calligraphy is the art of drawing letters by hand in an artistic and creative way. In recent years, people from all over the world have gravitated toward the discipline for work (applications exist in graphic design, advertising, hospitality and signage, to name a few) and pleasure. Artistic calligraphy can be anything from graffiti to restaurant menus on chalkboard to Christmas cards.

The Formentera Office of Culture is pleased to announce that the Association of People with Special Needs of Eivissa and Formentera (APNEEF), in collaboration with the Consell de Formentera, will host the return of an extra special evening of classical music to be held at the Sala de Cultura (Cinema) Saturday 15 October at 8.00 pm.

Performers include Alfredo Oyágüez, a pianist and artistic director of the Deià International Music Festival, and Byron Wallis, a violinist and native of the USA. Crowds at this year's event, the third APNEEF benefit concert, will witness the marriage of Oyágüez's gentle ivory-tickling and Wallis's delicate violin work as the pair perform works by F. Bruch, R. Schumannt and F. Schubert.

The prestigious event encompasses a wide range of concerts and numerous national and international performers, groups and composers. Shows take place in various venues between Deià and Valldemossa, like the former estate of Archduke Ludwig of Habsburg, Miramar monastery and Deià church.

Thanks to the commitment to social causes of organisers Alfredo Oyágüez and Rafael Cavestany, Formentera residents can look forward to a magical night close to home.

Tickets will be available for a €20 donation an hour before showtime at the door or through www.dimfentradas.com.

All proceeds will go to support APNEEF's projects and programmes to safeguard the rights of Pine Islands residents with functional diversity.
