Presenting Iolanda Bonet's "Crits de mar"

The Office of Culture of the Consell de Formentera is pleased to announce that Marià Villangómez library will host a presentation of Crits de mar, a collection of poetry by Iolanda Bonet. The presentation will be given by author and editor Ramon Mayol at 7.30pm on Thursday 28 April.

The publication is the 36th volume of "Ones de poesia", a digitally published collection from January 2013 which today, ten years later, is also available in print. This work brings together poetic reflections on the sea, an element which deliberately permeates the work of the Eivissa-born writer. "For reasons of pure rhythmical metrics, the sea sometimes appears in its feminine form and sometimes in its masculine form; 'En el buit', on the other hand, highlights perennially fraught perceptions around death and old age, while 'Isolats' deals with the loneliness that circumstances oblige", explains Bonet.

In the words of Ramon Mayol, who edited Crits de mar, "Bonet writes with freedom, her poetry carves out intervals that make catching one's breath impossible and creates expectation for what does not come. She seeks a symbolic place where there is only totally human hope and doubt".

Formentera hosts activity-packed weekend for Sant Jordi

The Office of Culture of the Consell de Formentera is pleased to report that the main events of the local Sant Jordi programme will take shape this weekend. Vanessa Parellada, culture councillor, encouraged all of Formentera to "enjoy the many activities planned for all audiences", and called it "the perfect chance to bring books and culture to islanders".

Saturday 22 April, Príncep Totilau theatre company will present their family show El meu amic Brutus.

Brutus 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.

This 50-minute all-ages production will be performed Saturday 22 April at 12 noon in Plaça de l'Església in Sant Ferran.

Later that day, from 6.00pm, the Casal de Joves will host a workshop where participants can craft postcards with collages and poems.

That same Saturday from 5.30pm, one of the Sant Jordi concerts will be held in the courtyard of Sa Senieta: a performance by the City of Eivissa Symphonic Band. Under the direction of Miquel Àngel Aguiló, 41 musicians will delight the crowd with a varied selection of fragments from film soundtracks. The stretch of Carrer Pla del Rei (PMV 820-1) extending from the roundabout at the entrance of Sant Francesc to Sa Senieta will be closed from 5.00pm until 7.30pm.

Diada de Sant Jordi
Sunday 23 April, the feast day of St George, or Diada de Sant Jordi, the classic tables to buy and exchange books will take over Plaça de la Constitució from 10.00am to 1.00pm. This event benefits from the collaboration of the local chapter of Obra Cultural Balear, Formentera libraries, the Spanish Cancer Association (AECC) and ADN Collective.

Also participating in the day with the signing and sale of their books are the authors Artur Parron, with El Partit Comunista a Eivissa i Formentera (1932-1979), and Anna Costa, with Rodolins acolorits per a grans i petits.

For the Diada's crowning event, Formentera will enjoy a performance by Imaràntia. The duet will perform songs from RetrUc, a work exploring the UC songbook, expressing gratitude, and celebrating the group's three founding members.

The concert will be held at Sala de Cultura (Cinema) Sunday 23 April at 8.30pm. Tickets go on sale Friday 14 April on www.entradesformentera.cat.

This exhibition features work from kids in the early childhood and primary school programmes of Sant Ferran, Mestre Lluís Andreu, El Pilar and Virgen Milagrosa, as well as the island's two nurseries.

The gala will start at 5.30pm Monday 24 April in the Sala de Cultura (Cinema).

The following week, Saturday 29 April, Formentera will host its three-part Correllengua:

A first stage from the lighthouse of La Mola to Sant Francesc and departing at 10.00am; a second stage from Es Cap de Barbaria lighthouse to Sant Francesc with departure at 4.00pm, and a third stage from La Savina to Sant Francesc with departure at 7.30pm, and arrival at 8.30pm, to kick off an evening of concerts.

Then, Monday 1 May from 9.00am, the Consell de Formentera plenary hall (sala de plens) will be the scene of the 49th Onomastics Society Colloquium, organised jointly by the Onomastics Society and Consell. The event will feature a presentation of Vicent Ferrer Mayans and Enric Ribes' book La toponímia de Formentera.

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.
