Full of love and adventure, western Jon Braun gears up for stops on Formentera and in Santa Eulària

jon-braun-2Forerunners in puppet theatre Anita Maravillas arrive in the Pine Islands with an all-ages western inspired by a popular song by Imanol Urbieta. With a sharp-as-knives aesthetic and large doses of humour, love and adventure, Jon Braun speaks to brotherly bonds and the power of love when faced with adversity.

A hit with audiences and critics alike, Jon Braun won Best All-Ages Family Production at the 2018 Titeremurcia. The show opens on Formentera on Saturday 26 October at 6.00pm in the Sala de Cultura (Cinema) and in Santa Eulària des Riu on Sunday the 27th, also at 6.00pm, at the Jesús Centre Cultural.

Jon Braun is included in PLATEA, a programme launched in 2014 to take top-quality domestic stage productions to island audiences by the Spanish Institute of Performing Arts and Music (INAEM), itself a division of Spain’s Ministry of Education, Culture and Sport.

Jon Braun traces the story of two American Indian brothers who are separated by the white man, but so strong is their love that the two never give up trying to find each other. The emotion-packed story is about the strength that love affords us when confronted with misfortune.

Jon Braun is no ordinary cowboys and Indians flick; the two leads are brothers who upend every stereotypes. Malintxe is stealthy, brave and a master of his own decisions; his younger brother Jon Braun is tender, and an unforgettable anti-hero.

The production runs fifty minutes, and tickets to the Formentera show are €5 and can be purchased the day of the event. Accompanying adults get in free. Tickets to the Santa Eulària show cost €9 if purchased at www.festivalbarruguet.com, or €10 at the CCdJ the day of the event.
