A small group of people walk around the city, following the Swiss writer Robert Walser, interpreted by Esteban Feune de Colombi. It is a theatrical work on foot, inspired in the universe of the Swiss writer of the first half of the 20th century and his universe, which are increasingly admired today.

The walk results in meetings that may be improvised or not, appearances, passing figures that make participants observe the everyday landscape in a different way. The act of walking as another way of exercising the sight and of living time, open, also, to the unexpected.

With more than one hundred performances behind it, Robert Walser’s Walk has already walked around many cities on both sides of the Atlantic.
