Entertaining, Clever, Delightful, Original, Great staging

See it if You like immersive, fun! Not any real story yet somehow there's a thread of emotion that connects audience and actors. Incredible really!

Don't see it if You can't stand for an hour and a half or have personal space issues.

90
Clever, Absorbing, Original

See it if you want a different kind of experience.

Don't see it if you can't stand up for an hour.

82
Entertaining, Energetic, Edgy, Quirky

See it if you have never seen previous Fuerza Bruta productions; you're looking for a theatrical experience in a club atmosphere; you seek the unique.

Don't see it if you've seen previous incarnations. (Not much new in this "new" production.) And certainly don't see it if you desire conventional theatre.

Absorbing, Ambitious, Dizzying, Edgy, Original

See it if you don't mind standing and are in the mood for something TOTALLY different, edgy, and youthful.

Don't see it if you mind standing and moving the whole time, aren't into interpretive storytelling with no dialogue, and don't want to possibly get wet.

Entertaining, Dizzying, Great staging, Riveting, Ambitious

See it if You're interested in watching physical/ gymnastic/circus performances.

Don't see it if You can't stand on your feet for an hour. Or if you've seen previous incarnations -- it's the same, despite its name.

85
Ambitious, Entertaining, Dizzying, Original, Great staging

See it if you enjoy a thoroughly unique and creative spectacle and audience participation.

Don't see it if you're claustrophobic, cannot see shows with strobe lighting, or cannot stand for the length of an 80 minute show.

85
Refreshing, Riveting, Absorbing, Dizzying, Intense

See it if you want something different, new, exciting, surreal, LOUD, tactical, zero 4th-wall, w/non-stop surprises. Incredible from start to finish.

Don't see it if theater means sitting. You're IN this show, standing inside all the action. One of the most incredible live experiences at a show EVER.

91
Absorbing, Delightful, Entertaining, Original, Riveting

See it if You enjoy seeing originality, magical moments and being involved in the show.

Don't see it if You do not want to stand, move around, bend or be part of the show.

Critic Reviews (5)

The New York Times
July 8th, 2014

"“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."

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."

"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."

Theatermania
July 8th, 2014

"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."

"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!"
