The first edition of the short novel The Walk, by Robert Walser, was published in April 1917, nearly 100 years ago. In it Walser offered a contemporary view of the figure of the flâneur, a contemplative stroller who as he walks analyses the impressions that the surroundings cause him. The Walk by Robert Walser is a theatrical proposal by Esteban Feune de Colombi and Marc Caellas which takes place in the streets of neighbourhoods in different cities. A kind of site-specific theatre, the journey starts on a corner, where a small group of spectators meet up with the actor who plays Robert Walser, and for the next hour and twenty minutes they follow him on a pleasant walk around the neighbourhood in question.
