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.

New York City Theater

"This post-modern show hails from Argentina and takes pride in being loud, brash and an all-immersive experience. It's a club experience like no other...It's lewd, a bit rude and outrageously trashy. You'll be on your feet throughout, so make sure to leave the stilleto heels at home!" Full Review

Time Out New York

"As a palate cleanser for theatergoers tired of living rooms and family secrets, Wayra is a bona fide thrill ride. Immersive theater may be more common now, but no one blasts through boundaries like these guys." Full Review

New York Daily News

"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." Full Review


"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 Sleep No More, Wayra is more or less old hat, no matter how high the actors fly around the room." Full Review

The New York Times

"“Wayra” is not an experience for control freaks or the claustrophobic. If you don’t like the idea of a plastic sheet that looks and smells like a massive shower curtain being unfurled directly on top of your head — that would be “Globa” — stay away. If emerging from a theater sopping wet would not add pleasure to your evening, you’d be taking a risk here: Some will be deluged." Full Review
