Doris Uhlich – Night of the bruts © Daniel Gottschling
As the saying goes, there’s life in the old dog yet: after a lengthy one-year deep sleep, the long performance & dance night has awakened to become the vibrant Night of the bruts. The old brut box is crammed from the cellar to the ceiling with installations, videos and performances.
From 7 pm into the early morning hours, artists and collectives connected with brut are called to present themselves or to have themselves immortalised in individual portraits.
In this context, as always you may not only look forward to insights into and outlooks upon future productions: special intimate and private moments will be shared everywhere from the workshop to the backstage area. The artists become a live jukebox, invite to a sleep-in with Yoko Ono and John Lennon, eat hamburgers with Andy Warhol or transform vacuum cleaners and mixers into portrait machines.
There will be ecologically sustainable magic and, finally, sparkling wine and Falco songs help the brut artists look beyond the crises that are being exclaimed everywhere. As a culinary treat, the brut pantry will offer an upgrade/downgrade kitchen.
brut im Konzerthaus also receives a new look and opens all its doors at midnight with an entertainment programme as a dimly lighted sushi bar for all the dance and party aficionados.
