With incredible 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 control. At every show, Fuerza Bruta guests are ushered onto the main stage, where they are surrounded in a 360-degree spectacle with performers demonstrating spectacular feats just inches away. From gorgeous women twisting ethereally in a Lucite pool above the audience to performers suspended in mid-air surrounded by a vast sea of Mylar, creative genius James’ original scenes and customized staging will deliver a wow to all who take it in.
