On 20 October, brut hosts the premiere of Doris Uhlich's new performance Ravemachine!
Anticipation is the most beautiful delight! On 20 October, brut hosts the premiere of Doris Uhlich's new performance Ravemachine, a collaboration with choreographer Michael Turinsky. Physical, musical and mechanical energies collide! Ravemachine is part of the Minifestival All machines welcome!, a co-operation between brut and WUK performing arts. Besides the premiere of Ravemachine at brut, WUK will host the workshop Every body electric on 12 October, an open workshop for people with disabilities, and show on 22 October a remix of the Ravemachine performance as an all-round version in open space without a grandstand as well as the group draft Every Body Electric followed by a rave party.

Home Visit Europe by Rimini Protokoll still invites the audience to private apartments in Vienna until 09 October!
"Home Visit Europe, which tours through ten European countries since the year before and stays at more than 500 private flats, demands clear decisions from the guests. Everyone is adressed personally and has to check his or her position. Here lies the strength of the evening. And if you look closer, you soon discover differences and that other people would draw other borders than you would." Margarete Affenzeller in Der Standard
The first brut-season is over and only in two weeks, we are starting into the new season. But before we do that, we would like 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 goodnight.at the communication strategy as the best one of all cultural institutions in Vienna. Thank you for that!
The Capitalism Tribunal by Haus Bartleby is nominated for the Nestroypreis!
