The still very young brut co-production house is already one of the most renowned independent theatres in the German language area. Within its venue brut hosts international, experimental and innovative performative art. Besides contemporary theatre, dance, performances and site-specific projects or lectures, discussions and workshops, the programme contains some of Vienna’s most cutting-edge pop concerts and parties. Pop cultural and artistically advanced formats intermingle and allow a generally art-loving public access to the innovative programme of the house. Each season, brut opens its doors for around 300 events. Almost two thirds of the shows presented are co-productions with Austrian artists and artists’ groups. Under the label brutproduction they are placed in an exciting relationship with international guest performances and co-productions hosted by brut. brut regularly concentrates the activities of the independent theatre scene in Austria under special topics and puts them into an international context.
