GUESTS – A Concentrated Talk Show with Pia Hierzegger and Guests

Closing Hour

It is time for GUESTS at brut to celebrate a Closing Hour at Karlsplatz together with Pia Hierzegger, her guests and Wien Museum. Before Wien Museum moves out in order for the Haerdtl building to be renovated and expanded, the museum invites audiences onto its premises for a final round of events. Being a good neighbour at Karlsplatz, brut will come over, too, bringing Pia Hierzegger and her concentrated talk show, GUESTS. As usual, the main subject – closing hours this time – may be interpreted as desired, so the guests to answer the questions of interviewer Pia Hierzegger might include night guards, locksmiths or even representatives of the city’s club culture.

Theater im Bahnhof: GUESTS – A Concentrated Talk Show with Pia Hierzegger & Guests

One guest, two tables, 110 questions. The regular brut series GUESTS – A Concentrated Talk Show features Pia Hierzegger of Theater im Bahnhof as a genial but merciless interviewer probing different Vienna personalities one after the other in intimate one-on-one conversations. The questions, drawn at random, may range from the current political situation to intimate personal issues. Their purpose is not to explain, expose or denounce. Instead, the audience should be given insights into the guests’ worlds and the country’s mentality. And yet, sometimes there might be a point where unpleasant follow-up questions are in order… Thus unfolds a vivid selection of greatly varying insights, views and perspectives during each show.

Graz-based Theater im Bahnhof makes contemporary theatre for the people and deals with the Austrian identity between tradition and pop culture. Austria’s largest professional but independent theatre company has been regularly featured in brut’s programming.



Concept Ed. Hauswirth, Pia Hierzegger Featuring Pia Hierzegger/Theater im Bahnhof and guests Music Lorenz Kabas

A co-production by Theater im Bahnhof and brut Wien in co-operation with Wien Museum. With the kind support of the City of Graz’s cultural office, the Styrian Provincial Government’s Department of Cultural Affairs and the Austrian Federal Chancellor’s Office.
