j_e_n_g_a – The Movie is a multi-lingual dance-film in which Tanja Erhart, her two crutches and Katharina Senk explore the juicyness of pleasure, interdependence and intersectional feminism in multi-sensorial perspectives.

European Spectator's Day 2019

The 5th European Spectator’s Day took place on November 16 as part of the European be SpectACTive! Network, in which brut’s audience club BEATE participated. In studio brut they met to discuss the central issues of discussion on freedom at the same time with each other and with over twenty groups at other theaters and institutions throughout Europe via Facebook. The meeting was graphically captured by local artists at each location. The idea of the European Spectator’s Day, as well as the entire be SpectACTive! Network, is to enable interested audiences to actively participate in the artistic work of an institution.
