Next Thursday, 'Quan els colors somien cançons' storytelling at Sant Ferran Reading Spot

The Office of Culture of the Consell de Formentera is pleased to report that Almudena Rubio will perform "Quan els colors somien cançons", the third in a series of story times organised jointly with La Panera Vermella, in Sant Ferran's Reading Spot (Punt de Lectura), Thursday 20 April at 5.00pm.

"Quan els colors somien cançons" is for children up to six years old. Colours go to sleep when night falls and everything goes dark. But who wakes them up? They say it is Lluna, with the music of her songs. How about lending a hand?

"Quan els colors somien cançons" is musical and interactive entertainment in which colours, sounds and songs awaken little ones' curiosity while connecting them with their emotional universe. Conceived as a first approach to music and emotions, the show employs instruments and captivating melodies to transport children to a magical and fascinating world.

The third instalment in the story time series is directed by Monma Mingot and stars Almudena Rubio (Madrid, 1984), a musician, actress and specialist in early-childhood education with a degree in music teaching. Rubio is a multidisciplinary artist focused on music and movement, studies classical dance and Afro-Latin styles and has furthered her studies in circus acrobatics, mime and clowning. She also studies acting and musical interpretation with Los del Sotano theatre school and company, where she has worked as an actress in plays for seven years.

Carmen Liberal Siso presents 'Mediterrània, ser i esdevenir' in 'Ajuntament Vell' exhibition space

The Office of Culture of the Consell de Formentera is pleased to report that from 17 to 29 April, "Ajuntament Vell" exhibition space will host artist Carmen Liberal Siso's work "Mediterrània, ser i esdevenir".

The featured work speaks, in Liberal's words, "to the Mediterranean Sea –a vast space of encounters and links across time– as the origin of the essence of our culture", and "to its multiple cultural versions, which are bound together by rich diversity, trade, myths, water and light".

The artist's most recent work finds her linking concept and chance to generate a formal language moving from geometry to the stroke of gestural connotations. In a project titled Forma i Moviment, Liberal also records videos with fragments of nearby landscapes and subsequently crafts compositions by combining these with details of pictorial works. This highlights the fluid relationship between organic forms and basic structures, which the artist describes as "a metaphor of human relationships and our interaction with nature, the ties that bind us, intertwine and are diluted again and again in their incessant transit".

The exhibition will open Monday 17 April at 7.00pm. It can be visited in the Sala d'Exposicions "Ajuntament Vell" from Tuesday to Saturday, 11.00am to 2.00pm and 6.00pm to 8.00pm.

Carmen Liberal Siso was born in Navarra and lives on Eivissa, where she develops her work in pictures and education. She graduated in Fine Arts from the University of Barcelona, specialising in Photo Cinema-Video.

In pictorial creations, one of Liberal's core materials is paper collage (opaque or translucent), which she combines with other techniques. She uses tracing paper as a glaze and experiments with water and colour, incisions and drips, and salt and sun. She then tears or cuts the paper and transforms it into subtle strokes, creating harmonious, nature-inspired compositions that are full of light.

In 2021 Liberal won the Consell d'Eivissa's Vuit d'Agost Painting Prize for Emprendada (the award was shared with Josefina Torres Riera).

The artist has had solo and group exhibitions in Navarra, Basque Country, Eivissa, Mallorca, Alicante and Galicia, some of which have been promoted by Art amb B (Association of Friends of Contemporary Art of the Balearic Islands).

Brutus the bear leaves the mountain to play and sing for the children and adults of Sant Ferran

The Office of Culture of the Consell de Formentera is pleased to report that as part of the local activities programme to celebrate Sant Jordi, the Príncep Totilau theatre company will perform their production El meu amic Brutus on Formentera.

Brutus is curious, affable and funny, and likes to hug people, smell what they eat and scratch his back against trees and walls. The 2.5m, 400kg brown bear and his nutty, happy-go-lucky family of mountain peasants decide one fine day to leave the cave where they live to see the world and exchange the apples from their orchard for stories and tales. Along the way, they will get all the families they meet to sing, dance and play traditional games.

El meu amic Brutus will be performed on Saturday 22 April at 12 noon in the square of the Church of Sant Ferran. The show lasts 50 minutes and is free of charge.
