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 labeling 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 judgment. 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!
