A series of weekly performances in public places (Biel/Bienne)

The Collectif barbare offers their public of passers-by a repertoire of unusual images and moments that open up an unexpected and refreshing margin of reflection.

The scenes are inspired by current events and gently flirt with occasionally disturbing themes ...
