Poetry and the Fleetingness of Being

Japanese performance artist Michikazu Matsune premieres his new piece

In November, Michikazu Matsune presents his new work For Now at brut at Hamakom. Poetic, at the same time perceptive he tells a story of the fleetingness of our lives and our communality and developes choreographic narrations, which connect objects, music and actions and put them in relation to one another. “The Japanese performer Michikazu Matsune, who lived in Vienna for many years now, always searches for Closeness to the visual arts and captivates with his unconventional style” (Kurier)

Happy Birthday to us - 10 years brut!

Thanks to everyone for your nice congratulations for 10 YEARS BRUT and 10 years full of crazy performances, party nights, concerts and bar events! As soon as we are back in Künstlerhaus next season, we catch up on the celebrations! In the meantime, you can visit the exciting projects of brut all over Vienna.

Find brut all over Vienna!

During the renovation of Künstlerhaus at Karlsplatz, brut moves out for one season and initiates an extensive programme at many different locations all over Vienna. The brut programme will constantly and during the whole season take place at theatre venues, such as Theater Nestroyhof/Hamakom, Halle G at Museumsquartier, and the newly renovated brut-venue at Zieglergasse. All in all nine new projects by local artists will premiere in these theatre spaces until February. Furthermore, five brut+ projects by local artists are also about to premiere until February. These will take place in a vacant building in Favouriten, at the Museum of Folk Life and Folk Art in Josefstadt, in the music club Grelle Forelle at Donaukanal, at a bus stop in Brigittenau, and at Jörderbad in Hernals.

We are very much looking forward to these many different locations and possibilities and cordially invite you to follow the brut-programme on a diverse and exciting tour through Vienna during the next season. In the season 2018/19, brut moves back to Künstlerhaus at Karlsplatz.

Drug wars and corruption in Mexico

Premiere of Gin Müller’s new work Fantomas Monster / part 2 Mexico

 

Fantomas Monster is a two-year project about state terror and human super heros, who fight against it. Part 2 of the series is set in Mexico and relates the story of the 43 disappeared teachers-in-training from Ayotzinapa. There Fantomas fights against crime and forgetting. The Mexican figure of Fantomas to which the play is referring, was developed in the Sixties as an antitype to American super heros.

Preview January

Performance in a public pool with the performance artist Oleg Soulimenko

 

During the wet and cold months of January and February, Oleg Soulimenko invites you to take an atmospherical trip to Jörgerbad. In the creepily empty and quiet public swimming pool, the audience wanders through a landscape of performance and water and is pulled into an undertow of warmth, video projections, sound, fog, performers, swimmers and water.

Poetic-philosophical work of dance at Volkskundemuseum

Alix Eynaudi and five dancers are inspired by the museum’s collection

 

In the rooms of the Volkskundemuseum, the Viennese choreographer Alix Eynaudi shows a work of dance, which shifts between choreography and performative exhibition. Together with five other artist she envelopes the audience in a labyrinth of signs and materials and creates a patchwork of sensual rhythms, music, light and poetry. The dancers get inspiration from Victorian botanical books and the museum’s collection, which contains amongst other things branded leather objects, punched masks or delicate carvings on animal hides.
