Formentera celebrates Diada de Sant Jordi

foto 2021 Sant Jordi ASaint George’s Day, also known as the Diada de Sant Jordi, dovetails today with the start of the 21st Antoni Tur “Gabrielet” bookmark contest. 23—27 April, Centre Antoni Tur “Gabrielet” will welcome an exhibition of bookmarks designed by pupils at Mestre Lluís Andreu, CEIP Sant Ferran, CEIP la Mola and Verge Miraculosa primary schools and children at Escoleta des Camí Vell and Escoleta sa Miranda nurseries.

To the one hundred winners of the bookmark contest and Robert Lewis Baldon children’s literature challenge, the Formentera offices of education and culture have handed out grab bags with books, flash-drives, headphones, notebooks, painting sets and bottle coolers. Each of the 22 participating classes also got €100 for educational material.

Education and culture councillor Susana Labrador applauded schools for helping celebrate reading, and thanked the jury that played a hand in picking winners for the bookmark contest (Formentera Association of Artists) and literature challenge (library staff).

Diada de Sant Jordi
The morning of Sant Jordi, book stalls will be set up on Sant Francesc’s Plaça de la de la Constitució. Writer Vicent Ferrer Mayans will sign copies of his book Carnatge, l'últim Nibelung. Written between 2003 and 2006 and with an edition by Lleonard Muntaner currently in stores, the dramatic work comes to life amid converging plots on the violence of a contemporary war.

23 April also marks the release of the second issue of ADN, a local fanzine that in recent years has risen from the ashes to enter a new era of publication. In the latest instalment, new faces join the usual cast of writers, cartoonists and creators to continue delivering an expressive platform for regional talent and devotees. On 23 April, project coordinator Vicent Ferrer and Miquel Costa, from ADN publishers Espai_F, will be in Plaça de la Constitució presenting the fanzine as part of Sant Jordi celebrations.

At 5.00pm Friday 23 April, it’s one for the kids, as Eva Lluch traces the origins of the Sant Jordi legend with La veritable història del drac i la rosa. The storytelling session will take place in the Centre Tur “Gabrielet” courtyard. Tickets are sold out.

Additionally, the Casal de Joves has programmed an array of Sant Jordi-themed workshops from 5.00pm.

Family-friendly “On és quan ja no hi és” explores loss of a loved one

foto 2021 teatre AThe Formentera Department of Culture reports that the 14th Formentera Festival of Children’s Entertainment will conclude Sunday 2 May with a production of Tolo Ferrà’s On és quan ja no hi és. Ferrà, a Mallorca native, takes on a subject that is never easy, particularly for youngsters: the death of a loved one. Winner of a recent celebration of family-friendly coproductions, On és quan ja no hi és offers various ideas for talking to kids about what is often a sensitive subject.

On és quan ja no his és? portrays death from the viewpoint of a child, an adult and an elderly person — perspectives at once distinct and interconnected. The three theatrical languages alternately merge to present audiences with a surprising final result: visual theatre, object theatre and live-action cinema.

On és quan ja no hi és? is a family-friendly production and is recommended for children over 5. Sala de Cultura-Cinema, 6.00pm, Saturday 27 February. Advance reservations are required and can be made from Friday 23 April on www.entradesformentera.cat.

The event will be carried out in accordance with safety protocol and respecting current regulations. On és quan ja no hi és is part of a series of performing-arts productions that is backed by the Institut d’Estudis Baleàrics and the Ministry of Culture’s INAEM programme.
