We study pseudo-integrable billiards generated by a boundary composed of several
arcs of confocal conics having nonconvex angles. The dynamics of such billiards
have several extraordinary properties, which are related to interval exchange
transformations and which generate families of flows that are minimal but not
uniquely ergodic.
