Join in, get naked.

Join in, get naked; Body & Freedom Festival

Local artist Glynis Ackermann likens her first time performing naked to the sensation of flying.

She's been performing naked for years and it all started when she met Thomas Zollinger, the creator of the Body & Freedom festival, which takes place this week in Biel / Bienne.

Glynis Ackermann and Thomas Zollinger will be, once again, performing together this weekend.

With authorisation from the police and council authorities to perform naked in the pedestrian areas in central Biel, 18 groups and solo performers will explore the naked body in urban space at Biel's first fully naked festival.

There is even an opportunity to get involved yourself in an open project on Saturday - registration in advance is required through www.ritualtheatre.ch

Hear from Glynis about her first experiences of naked performance and how you can get involved in this podcast below. Her enthusiasm might just tempt you...

Further information about the festival itself is available on our events page.
