Fuerza Bruta widens eyes, quickens pulses, and cranes necks as it treats audiences of all ages to a dance party whose dance floor is rarely subject to gravity. Set to a soundtrack that ebbs and flows from thumping club tunes to calm New World music, this kaleidoscopic show from the creators of De La Guarda demolishes the fourth wall, extending the stage over audience members’ heads as suspended performers seem to walk on air or tumble up a Technicolor wall of cloth. At one point, the air fills with water and the dancers swim, cavort, and press palms with audience members through the clear Mylar tarp suspending the water. Colorful, flashing lights illuminate a host of other marvels during the 70-minute phantasmagoria, including a man on a treadmill who must leap through oncoming rooms and occasionally bolt headfirst through walls.
Attendees are encouraged to lose themselves in dance, both by the lack of seats and the abundance of carelessly placed mousetraps. A group photo is taken at each performance and shared the following day on the Fuerza Bruta Facebook page.
