Traditional, Horrific and Amusing Czech Statuary @ Teatro des Actos at La Senieta

Traditional, Horrific, & Ridiculously Amusing CZECH STATUARY along with a Few Other Related Artworks. 

With Czechia’s position in central Europe, it has been invaded many times & has been taken over from time to time by one power or another. Given that, there are of course many images attesting to the difficult times they have had during wars & occupations. What is less easy to understand is how so much humour has been retained through it all, & how forgiving the people & government seem to be of artists’ poking fun of the country. This is what makes it such a fun place to visit. This will give you a sampling, ranging from the ordinary to the horrific to the amusing & controversial, all jumbled together.

An investigator on the Moscow police force relentlessly pursues the solution to a triple homicide which occurred in Moscow’s Gorky Park. He finds that no one really wants him to solve the crime because it is just the tip of a complex conspiracy which involves the highest levels of the Moscow city government.

Lee Marvin and William Hurt star in what has been described as “the thriller of the 80s”.

The great Valencian painter, Salvador Abril y Blasco @ Teatro des Actos at La Senieta

The great Valencian painter, Salvador Abril y Blasco @ Teatro des Actos at La Senieta

The great Valencian painter, Salvador Abril y Blasco (1862 – 1924)

Salvador Abril y Blasco was born in Valencia in 1862 and commenced his artistic studies at the age of 12 at the San Carlos Academy of Fine Arts in Valencia, alongside his more well-known contemporary, Joaquín Sorolla y Bastida. Abril excelled in the painting of landscapes, his speciality being seascapes which gave him his greatest triumphs both in Spain and abroad. There are ten known paintings that Salvador Abril painted in Xàbia as well as several photographs taken by himself and some notes for his story Memories of my excursions (Valencia 1915). No doubt there are other unknown works in private collections and it is hoped that eventually they will come to light to give due recognition to a great Valencian painter who, like Sorolla and other artists, came to Xàbia and fell in love with its coasts.

A history of Malta @ Teatro des Actos at La Senieta
Nov 22 @ 10:30 – 11:30
A history of Malta @ Teatro des Actos at La Senieta

From earliest recorded history Malta has been subject to numerous invasions and occupations. From the Punic Wars between Rome and Carthage to the Moorish invasion in the 8th century, followed by the Vikings /Normans, Aragon, Spain, and the Knights Hospitaller. The Knights were responsible for the defence against the Ottoman Siege of 1565 and subsequently built what is now the capital Valetta. The British took over in 1815, and created a military base that withstood attack by the Axis powers in World War 2. Britain granted Malta independence in 1964. Malta joined the EU in2003 and is now on the front line of immigration from North Africa. The assassination of an investigative journalist threatens to uncover corruption amongst the ruling elite.

In the mid-nineteenth century Ada (Holly Hunter), who cannot speak, is the bride in an arranged marriage, compelling her to leave her native Scotland for New Zealand, accompanied by her young daughter Flora and her beloved piano. Life in the rugged forests of the North Island is not all she may have imagined and nor is her relationship with her new husband Alisdair (Sam Neill). She suffers torment and loss when Alisdair sells her piano to a neighbour, George. Ada learns from George that she may earn back her piano by giving him piano lessons, but only with certain other conditions attached. At first Ada despises George (Harvey Keitel), but slowly their relationship is transformed and this propels them into a dire situation.

Elizabeth Jane Campion was nominated as the second of only five women ever for the Academy Award for Best Director for this film, which also earned her the accolade of being the first female filmmaker in history to receive the Palme d’Or at the Cannes Film Festival. In addition she won the Academy Award for Best Original Screenplay.
