The weekends of the Vilafranca Children’s and Young People’s Theatre Fair are full of shows and family audiences.
Until Sunday 17th October, Vilafranca is hosting more than forty theatre shows for all the family that fill the streets of the town with public and performing arts at the FIET, the Children’s and Young People’s Theatre Fair of the Balearic Islands.
Among the highlights of this Saturday’s performance was ‘Lázaro‘, the Valencian Roberto Hoyo offered a rogue hip hop show aimed at young people over the age of 12, a show that revisits ‘El Lazarillo de Tormes’. For the first time, FIET incorporates a hip hop and urban dance show.
Nacho Diago’s play, ‘…’ has also been very well received by the public.’Playtime‘, a show designed for the whole family where the search is based on object theatre, clowning, physical and visual theatre, music, humour and how they all come together in illusionism, understood as a visual, surreal, playful and astonishing poem.
The circus with the work Àvol de Circ Bover was also one of the most outstanding Mallorcan shows and was acclaimed by the public attending Vilafranca. Ávol’ has vindicated the figure of the artist through four characters who suddenly need to reinvent themselves.
As is logical, this year’s format is adapted to the current health circumstances, which means that there will be no travelling shows, although there will be 9 shows in different public spaces in Vilafranca, in the open air, with prior reservation of seats and free of charge.
The theatrical offer, selected with criteria of quality and innovation, includes contemporary dance, object and documentary theatre, magic, musical installations, circus, trap and many other genres that will be enjoyed by children and adults alike.
The FIET is organised by Sa Xerxa de Teatro Infantil y Juvenil de Baleares with the support of the Town Council of Vilafranca; the COFAE; the Ministry of Culture; the Department of European Funds, University and Culture; the Institute of Balearic Studies and the Department of Culture, Heritage and Linguistic Policy of the Consell de Mallorca.
