You can be BEATE, too!

Come join BEATE, the audience club at brut. BEATE is short for BRUT’S ENGAGED AUDIENCE as THEATRE EXPERTS – might sound complicated, but is actually pretty simple: BEATE joins rehearsals and creation processes of projects, opens a dialogue with artists and takes part in brut’s season programming.

The BEATE audience club is looking for new members! Actively engaged brut visitors meets regularly to attend rehearsals, shows and performances. The open-minded and appreciative exchange about performance, dance and theater in a continuous group is central. At the start of the new season 2021/22, we are looking forward to newcomers!

In addition to gaining profound insight in artistic and organizational processes, with BEATE you will also have the opportunity to devise specific events for the brut-programme, to select artists for residencies and to create content for the online magazine.

You should bring enthusiasm for performative art, but no special previous knowledge is required. Through the mutual exchange and collective work in the group, you, as active participants of the BEATE audience club, will become experts, who enrich the diverse programme of brut with new perspectives.


  • Starting from September, about 2-3 meetings per month in the evening
  • 1st meeting expected to be September 24th 2021 - 17:00 at brut nordwest
  • We invite all those to register who are interested in a collaborative, intensive exchange and who are willing to actively take part in the group meetings on a regular basis.
  • BEATE – just like brut – aims to create a non-discriminatory space that explicitly welcomes diverse perspectives. We are particularly looking forward to registrations from BIPOC and LGBTQIA+ people of all ages.
  • Please send us a few lines about yourself (bio), why you want to take part in the audience club BEATE and why the participation could be relevant or enriching for you. In case of a numerous amount of applications, we might have to make a selection.


Please register until September 15th only via mail to

The participation is free. Tickets for events are free or heavily discounted.
