Letters for later

Initiated by Claire Lefèvre, Letters for later is a writing project which allows audience members to write open letters about the performances programmed at brut. Addressed to the artists, to the piece, or to the world, these letters offer a gentle and personal alternative to review-writing, inviting spectators to share their impressions from a place of care and curiosity, while also acknowledging their subjectivity.
