BRUT is a solo project of Sonia Dietrich that was conceived in anger in response to the inequity of women’s role in social media and the post-industrial music and art scene. BRUT is a “non-art” project - BRUT is oxygen.

BRUT is a child that survived abortion and grew to become an absolute all-consuming entity of my subconscious. I have been called a feminist - if labelling is necessary, so be it - BRUT is feminist and is proud.

BRUT performances are a combination of self-made film, sound and body activism. I use my body as an instrument. Each performance is a chapter; it’s a play; it’s a story of many and one; a reflection on women’s position in society, in different countries, cultures, ethnic backgrounds, social and economic positions.

BRUT gives a choice. It is pro-choice. It gives a voice. It is loud and demanding of change. BRUT stands for unity, humility, respect, love, sex and power. BRUT despises labels, stereotypes, stupidity, small- mindedness and judgement. BRUT welcomes you to the world as I see it. And if you choose to leave, there is always a door or an exit route. UNITED WE STAND!

BRUT has a smell. A body. A vagina. A mind. BRUT has a picture. A reflection. An interface. BRUT is strong and angry. BRUT is restless and manic. BRUT is political. Feministic. BRUT has a voice. It consumes and pukes out. BRUT is alcohol poisoning. A prescription drug. BRUT! Neither in or out. BRUT bleeds and shits and pisses. BRUT is outraged. It hates! BRUT is YOU as much as it is ME. BRUT does not vote, pay taxes or interact. BRUT breathes. Despises stupidity. BRUT is never satisfied. BRUT is hungry! BRUT is an entity I will give you. So you can see what BRUT wants you to see.

BRUT does not believe in war or in peace.
