Hope to see you on 12 & 13 May in brut Künstlerhaus, Vienna!

brut_picture_blog_080515   “After brut, my kidneys should be donated” – –

For two days, the most private spaces of brut Wien – the toilets – are occupied by our sound installation Wie stehen Sie zum brut (What’s Your Take on brut?). In a questionnaire on “How to handle death well”, the word “death” is replaced by “brut” – resulting in highly emotional statements about one of the greatest performance venues in Vienna.

Our sound installation and many other exciting SO WEIT SO BRUT festival projects await you in brut Wien!!

“With the 13th May the first eight years of brut draw to a close: the baton can be passed on and the co-production house once again re-invented. But beforehand, everything that brut had been in the past eight years will be celebrated one last time: performances, theatre, dance, concerts, club nights, debates, workshops – a variety of formats and contents that were always meant to interact, mesh, crossbreed and co-exist. Expanding scopes and spaces for agency, transcending boundaries and intensive content-based work have all been goals of the artistic programme.” (brut)
