backsteinhaus produktion

brickhouse production was founded in 2007 by Nicki Liszta. Members are Nicki Liszta, Heiko Giering and Isabelle von Gatterburg. The team is supported by Caroline Intrup. 

The individual and recognizable signature of backsteinhaus produktion is the creation of absurd worlds with an authentic, real aesthetic. The work with its idiosyncratic and interdisciplinary formal language is on the border of contemporary dance and theatre.

brickhouse production thematically highlights current events and develops caricatures of our society by means of theatrical exaggeration. The contradictions of the human individual and the community are reduced to concrete social, physical and spatial conditions and create a distinctive cosmos. Spatial proximity, the directness of the action and the intensive collaboration of the performers in the creation of the pieces create a high degree of authenticity and depth.

Whether in the black box as well as in the development at non-theatre-spaces, brickhouse production realizes emotionally immersive dance theater that examines and questions our society.

backsteinhaus produktion has been located at the Theater Rampe in Stuttgart since 2016 and cooperates from there with various other collaborators.
