Theater Brett, Viennese theatre company, established in 1977 by the Czech couple Nika Brettschneider and Ludvík Kavín. At first the group gave performances on various stages; since 1984 Theater Brett has had its own theatre in the sixth district of Vienna. Theater Brett focuses on non-verbal theatre using gestures, facial expressions, and body language. The company performs works by both Czech and Austrian authors. Since the end of the Communist dictatorships in Eastern Europe, it has concentrated more on the artistic and cultural development of the post-Communist countries, also presenting guest performances and festivals from this region.
