About the show

The newest venture by Argentina's Fuerza Bruta, this is an interactive, spectacular show with live music and aerial acrobatics. More…

This Off-Broadway interactive experience is multi-sensory. Part-club night, part-theatre, Fuerza Bruta incorporates music and airborne gymnastic feats into its newest show, "Wayra", an expanded and updated version of the Argentinian spectacle. The audience remains on its feet and may be asked to move and participate.

"Prepare to be blasted by gale-force gusts in the high-energy “Wayra” — which is fitting, since the title of the show means wind...Splashy and cool? You bet. But if you’re eyeballing your budget and you’ve seen “Fuerza Bruta,” you can let “Wayra” breeze by."

"While Wayra, the latest iteration of Fuerza Bruta, is being billed as providing a "fresh experience" through "newly designed set and scenes," nothing about it actually feels that way. And in the age of mind-blowing environmental-theater shows like Here Lies Love, Queen of the Night, and even Sl...
