brut in the media

The first brut-season is over and the new season 2016/17 has already started. We would like to take a moment to thank our audience, who remained true to brut during the last season and contributed to its 90 per cent visitor attendance!

We are pleased about positive feedback in the media. Hence, Helmut Ploebst writes in Der Standard "Director Kira Kirsch has presented a successful new season 2015&16". Theresa Gindlstrasser attests a "necessary new positioning as performance location" and a "courageous refusal to the orientation on visitor numbers and efficiency" in Theater der Zeit. Furthermore Magdalena Hiller likes on the communication strategy as the best one of all cultural institutions in Vienna. Thank you for that!


2. December to 7 December 2016

Every two years, Freischwimmer Festival presents new positions from the independent dance, performance and theatre scene. This year´s theme is Family Affairs. All projects are about family, intimate and social relationships. Veza Fernández reflects relationships of power and care, looking for a new definition of role models, fatherliness and the body, together with Frans Poelstra, Roland Rauschmeier and Yosi Wanunu. Dancer Anna Natt lures the audience into a magical world full of strings, hair and horses using themes and symbols from fairy tales and myths. The collective Scripted Reality creates a interactive happening, mixed with workers songs and neoliberalism. K.U.R.S.K., another collective, explores its own roots: A grandfather of one of the members was a sisal farmer and high ranked Nazi. Finally, the collective The Agency invites to a post-pragramatic love-coaching about the basics of the Ways of Love and Pleasure.
