Robert Fallenstein | BurgStadtMenschen #9


Zunächst mal:

Herzlichen Dank an die Offene Burg dafür, dass die Wiener Brut 2016/2017 erstmals ein generationenübergreifendes Unternehmen geworden ist. Kennen tat ich die „Brut“ schon länger: habe als Zuschauer die Brüter*innen im Sommer 2016 im Kasino gesehen und Renate Aichinger seit einigen Jahren bereits im Rahmen des Bürgertheaterprojekts am Landestheater Niederösterreich als Regisseurin erlebt. 308 altre parole
