“Fuerzabruta” promises semblance of techno party and mind-blowing entertainment
“Fuerzabruta” (translated Brute Force) by the group who did “De La Guarda” (featuring performers flying around and sometimes taking with them the spectators) and made it the talk of New York promises a mind-blowing experience. Spectators need only look up to get excited viewing wet women in a pool overhead. Transparent plastic sheet holds up the water.
Get ready, therefore, for what has been described in Time Out New York as “half techno party, half avant-garde mood piece.” The production with no permanent stage and fixed seating arrangement all originated from Buenos Aires, Argentina.
The production created and directed by Diqui James will be “an interactive environmental thrill ride without narrative, characters or message.”
Energy-packed performances – 60 in all – are kicking off on Decemer 15 inside a tent at the Taipei Xinyi District A10 Parking Area right next to Shin Kong Mitsukoshi Department Store’s A8 Building and will run until January 24 next year. Taipei is the first stop in the Asian tour of “Fuerzabruta.”
The show opened in London in 2002 for a two-year run. Performances were packed nightly. It arrived in New York in October 2007, once more creating a sensation. Celebrities like Madonna, Beyonce, Cameron Diaz, Leonardo di Caprio and Harrison Ford went out of their way to watch it.
Performances in Taipei will start at 7:30 p.m. on Tuesdays and Thursdays, at 7:30 p.m. and 10:30 p.m. on Wednesdays, Fridays and Saturdays, as well as at 4:30 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. on Sundays.
