"Millie Potter goes to the circus", English-language story time at Sant Ferran's Punt de Lectura

The Formentera Office of Culture is pleased to announce that the Reading Point [Punt de Lectura] in Sant Ferran Cultural Space [Espai Cultural] has scheduled a storytelling in English at 5.00pm on Wednesday 27 April. Admission is free and reservations are not required.

Elàstic Nou Productions presents "Millie Potter goes to the circus", an English-language story time for children ages four to nine.

"Millie Potter goes to the circus" is an educational activity that is inspired by the world of the circus and the figures inhabit it. Based on the adventures of the unpredictable Millie Potter, the company hopes to promote English language learning by facilitating oral expression and comprehension. The interactive show combines distinct theatrical genres, including aspects of gestural theatre and clowns, as well as the Teresina sisters. The protagonist promises the audience new adventures, adapting to their level of English.

In "Millie Potter goes to the circus", the protagonist dreams of going to her town's visiting circus. Everything is ready; the keys, the snack, the tickets... Millie Potter's curiosity is unpredictable, and everything she does is a surprise-filled adventure.

Elàstic Nou Productions started in 1995 and, in their 20-plus years of on-stage experience, have brought to life national and international works of contemporary literature from the likes of Claudio Lizza, Danilo Macri, Miriam Formisano, Marco Tulipano, Israel Horovitz, Rodolfo Sirera, Joaquín Faidella, Raymond Cousse, AR Gurney, Michael Frayn, Federico Garcia Lorca and Alfred Jarry. The company has also performed original works by Enric de la Heras, Juan Yago, Enric Ases, Mary Ramírez and Aina M. Gimeno.
