No, they weren't scouring the heavens for vagrant U.F.O.'s. Patrons at the Daryl Roth Theater in Manhattan were experiencing close encounters of a more conventional kind as they bumped in the night, dodging showers of confetti that rained intermittently onto their heads.

1: brute force 2: the new show from the creators of DE LA GUARDA 3: a 360° heart-pounding theatrical experience

From the creators of the smash-hit De La Guarda, Fuerzabruta is an event where worlds collide, dreams are real and reality takes a back seat. The visuals are spectacular. The effects are stunning.

Performers run and tumble across a vertical wall of technicolor cloth, a man runs headlong through a wall, two people try desperately to connect from opposite sides of a huge spinning and whirling sail and - most extraordinary of all - performers dance in watery world just above the audience’s heads.

This all takes place to a soundtrack that traverses thumping club beats to the mellow sounds of new world music. Fuerzabruta has taken Europe and South America by storm - its New York debut is one of the most anticipated events of the Fall season.
