The Barkers

The Company of Barkers (Bonimenteurs in French) has been created in 1997 at the Belgian « Namur en Mai » festival, embracing the « Art of Barkering » and extending its artistic approach especially in the area of Street Theatre festivals, touring a wide diversity of shows : in wandering, with bicycles, inside “entry-exit” hut, walkabout show, staging on boards, … and always positive and immediately recognisable !

Based in Namur (Belgium), we have built an international reputation. Since our first performance, we have created more than 10 different productions and toured to major festivals throughout Belgium, France, Luxembourg and Switzerland, as well in Canada and Senegal.

In addition, even if our catalogue is mainly made of French speaking family (and funny) shows, our Barkers can also act in English, with our so-lovely French accent …

“Faaar Wouest”

To enter in our little Saloon, the public has to become a real cow-boy and participate to some funny games organised by our two comedians. Once inside, he will discover
that the last legend of the West …
is not really what it is !

The “head through the hole” book

Two comedians will tell you the best love story of the 21st century. They will choose two innocent bystanders who will become active participants of this wonderful story. Hopefully with a happy-end … if it is required by the public !
