Brut is choreography for gourmets – a demanding work, brutally artistic, difficult, but artistically bold and certainly a boon for Czech dance.
Jana Návratová, Taneční Zóna
Brut is a demanding production which not even the bitter humour at the end lightens (...) You laugh, but in reality you are incredibly sad.
Kateřina Farná, Právo
Brut offers a raw face of movement, full of wildness, tension and above all emotions (...) Nanohach is one of the most progressive companies in the Czech Republic.
Vladimír Hulec, MF Dnes
