The brut Extras series including regular roundtables, Q&As, walks and talks provides various opportunities for dialogues and encounters. Audiences, colleagues, artists and neighbours get together to have conversations, give feedback and exchange views. It’s processes, not results that count for the Extras!
This monthly open roundtable at the brut kitchen creates a platform for conversations and encounters. Everybody is invited, from artists and colleagues to the audience, brut newbies or neighbouring institutions from Karlsplatz and from the city. Alternating chefs from inside brut keep guests busy with joint cooking, providing a lot of time to get to know each other and exchange views about anything from recipes to dentist recommendations or ideas for the next performance. Oh, and yes, please bring your own favourite beverage!
The rehearsal process shall be opened to regular artist talks, in which the audience and colleagues are invited to see some first efforts and talk about them. Handle with Care allows audiences to meet artists currently devising a production at brut and to talk to them about creative processes and aspects of their work. Conversely, artists get the chance to try out parts of their work in front of a small audience and to collect feedback. Handle with Care makes the artist and the audience accomplices.
For Out and About, artists and the audience fan out to explore the city. This can include anything ranging from joint walks to meetings at special places and strolls in shopping streets. These city tours can lead off beaten tracks, question established views of the city and open up new perspectives.
