Fallas 2010: Na Jordana – 7th Place

Add to Flipboard Magazine.

Na Jordana’s monument impressed most in the evening hours, when its haunted mansion and creepy figures were lit up and given an extra air of spookiness.

The motto this year was “Pelqueveigesticboig”, which I’m not even going to try and translate. Na Jordana is most well-known for its sense of humor. Consistent front-runners for the prize rewarding wit and ingenuity, they took it home again this year. Their monument was dedicated to insanity, a theme which provides ample comic opportunity. Dancing pigs and elephants atop a street light, a huge cow dragging her udders across the ground, and the highlight: Dr. Jeckyll’s conversion into Mr. Hyde.

7th place is probably a disappointment for the Na Jordana commission, but their monument was a lot of fun, and they should be proud of it. It’s become one of the monuments we most look forward to.

Estoreta-2010

What little troopers! The kids marching in this morning’s Cant d’Estorta had to brave the nasty weather which has put a real damper on Fallas.  From the warmth of a cozy cafe, we watched cute, shivering children re-enact famous scenes from history. "Brrrr", I thought, eating my piping hot patatas bravas, "those poor, freezing, ADORABLE kids!"

Many of the mini-floats were great, but we especially loved the hot air balloons. Good job kids!  It’s never too young to learn that art is all about suffering and misery.
