Key Topic

For the past seven years brut has been persistently challenging the boundaries of artistic disciplines, gender identities, pop culture and contemporary performance, in order to undermine the status quo and to create productive cracks in the foundations of our thinking. Starting in its eighth season with the key topic Borderless, brut presents a number of performances that all topple the border between the stage and the audience, theatre and the outside world, lived identity and artistic appropriation, dreading and dreaming.

Watch Out
A Double Feature with Ivana Müller & Vlad Basalìcì

The double bill Watch Out brings together the artistic works of Vlad Basalìcì and Ivana Müller. Both performances address the relationship between performers and their audience and the shared experience of the Here and Now. In It is what it is, Vlad Basalìcì challenges the spectators’ perception of time and transforms the mundane and everyday through his conceptual approach. In We Are Still Watching, Ivana Müller invites the audience to join in a reading rehearsal that directs their focus to issues of representation and the functionality of political processes.
