Fuerza Bruta, meaning “Brute Force”, originated in Buenos Aires in 2005 and has run in Broadway for 4 years. This 60-minute spectacle has been brought around the world, in places like New York, Chicago, London, Mexico, Madrid, Taipei; and has finally landed in our country for a six week performance. What sets Fuerza Bruta apart from other shows is how it combines clubbing and performance art — it’s a frenzied show of dance and music, showcasing kinetic aerial imagery.

Saw this with friends over the weekend. I was so excited after carefully reading all the reviews. Carefully, meaning I tried to skip over the parts where there are spoilers because I want to experience it without knowing what will happen next. It was pretty good. I was a bit disappointed how short it was. Good thing we got the tickets at a 50% off. The music was pretty amazing but it can get a bit loud. My heart was thumping so hard I wasn’t sure if I could take it anymore! I’m a bit claustrophobic at times so when they started lowering down the plexiglass for the water show, I had to grab the husband’s hand to calm myself. The water show was great! Definitely worth the price. The other scenes, you can’t help but dance with them. I’ve always liked shows where the crowd goes wild with the performers but only if EVERYONE does it. Which was exactly how it was last weekend. Everyone was on fire, jumping and dancing. Feeling scared and excited. It was really a feast for the senses. Dream-like scenes, surreal movements, trance music at its best.
