Featuring mind – blowing visual effects that must be seen to be believed – a man running full throttle through a series of moving walls, women frolicking in a watery world suspended just inches above the audience – FUERZA BRUTA: LOOK UP is a theatrical experience that floods the senses.

This is a cool show. It's perfect for outgoing and energetic people. It's a great visual and theatrical experience as part of the audience. Do wear comfortable shoes and don't carry too much (or anything if you can). I find that it is not recommendable for kids.

Last nights (July 27, 2014; New York City) performance of Fuerza Bruta: Wayra was over the top fantastic. It was in a small theatre at Union Square. It lasted 1.5 hours, and you were standing the whole time - there were no seats. It was an entertaining performance of loud, rave like music, with high energy, fast paced movement by... More

Went to see this at the "Culture Factory", (aka an old abandoned Dell Computer factory) in Limerick, in aid of the Limerick City of culture 2014. The most disappointing thing was the absolute lack of visual effects. It looked more like a cheap Ikea advert that went wrong. The man running on the treadmill could have been a great effect,...

Imagine for a second a bunch of untalented guys eager to party and with a brilliant idea, they party and you pay for it. There is loud music, nonsense going on without any sense or skill like a guy running in a running machine and some chairs and tables passing on the sides while some confetti and water pours over....

I have to agree that the set up is different, but it's trying being standing and all these sort of effects they through on you. There is no plot, no connection. Bad mimics. They do not express anything, just a bunch of people moving and you wonder why. We left after 10 minutes. The.best part was our little dinner we... More

Just really disappointed. My expectations were so high and it was incredibly disappointing. It was hot, crowded and I kind of felt like cattle being shoved around a small space. Surprised this show is still even playing.

Got the tickets for my birthday and was so disappointed its more like an art show. You watch people playing drums then a man running through walls of boxes on a treadmill followed by two girls chasing after each other on the wall. Afterwards you watch them destroy a bunch of boxes and then do a dance. Then suspended on... More

When it comes to innovation, I think Fuerza Bruta still reigns supreme. Every time I go, the guests that I bring leave amazed. It does lack continuity but excels in uniqueness and visual stimulation. Always notice that it appeals to a young audience that winds up dancing to overly loud music while getting soaked with water. To me, the best... More

I've been raving about going to see Fuerza Bruta since I saw its advertisement on LivingSocial. My boyfriend and I finally decided to see this show after we thought we found a good Groupon deal for $44/person. Unfortunately, we showed up a few minutes late but overall the most interesting part of the show was the woman swimming above our... More

I New It was going to be diferent, but I expected more. Scenes have bot connections among them. Every act is nice, but a little overused, I mean if they are going to do the same performance with 35 to 40 minutes is enought. Don't to mention that for the full price, you get Broadway tickets for spectacles with Hughes... More
