International sensation Fuerza Bruta is a dynamic and immersive theatrical production performed in a state-of-the-art tent. An interactive theatre experience unlike any other, Fuerza Bruta delights the senses through music, emotion and kinetic aerial imagery. With mind-blowing visual effects, Fuerza Bruta breaks free of the confines of spoken language and theatrical convention to transport audiences to a parallel reality where emotion takes over. At every show, Fuerza Bruta guests are ushered onto the main stage, where they are engulfed in a 360-degree spectacle with performers demonstrating spectacular feats just inches away from them. From gorgeous women twisting ethereally in a Lucite pool above the audience to performers suspended midair surrounded by a vast sea of Mylar, creative genius Dique James’s original scenes and customized staging have to be seen to be believed.
