Es Baluard organizes El paseo de Robert Walser, a scenographic tour by Marc Caellas through the El Terreno neighborhood played by Esteban Feune de Colombi, which takes place in the streets of different neighborhoods. Posed as a site-specific play, the journey begins in a corner, where a group of no more than twelve spectators meet the actor who plays the stroller Robert Walser and follow him for an hour, in apparent anarchy, for the neighborhood in question. Along the way there are encounters, random or not, theatrical or not, improvised or not.
Registration can be done in the email firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone, call 689395620. The registered will be informed of the meeting point, in the neighborhood of El Terreno, at the time of registration, which has a price of 10 €
