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 goodnight.at the communication strategy as the best one of all cultural institutions in Vienna. Thank you for that!
