Fuerza Bruta is a combination of a cirque show and a dance club. Visitors stand for the 60-minute show while listening to a combination of trance and house music. There are a couple of different 'acts' that are performed.
For example, the show opens with a man running on a large treadmill that is wheeled out into the middle of the crowd. Another act involves four scantily clad women playing slip-and-slide on a transparent plexiglass pool suspended overhead, while the attendees below poke at their bodies in the shallow pool.
I could see the energy of the crowd varying from show to show, and that probably affects the quality of the experience that you have. The acts themselves aren't all that impressive. My favorite was when two women were dancing on a reflective curtain that was pulled around the room - it made for a very neat effect. However, I found some of the other acts quite boring. Still, I had been wanting to see Fuerza Bruta for some time, and I'm glad I finally got around to it.
Full price tickets are around $80, which seems like far too much. Even half price tickets, often available at the tkts booths for $40, seems a bit steep. A limited number of $20 rush tickets are sometimes available 2 hours before the show.
The show uses strobe lights, loud music, lots of fog machines, and you may occasionally see some breast. During the winter, a coat check is available for $2. There is a big sprinkler in the middle of the room at the end of the show, but if you're not standing in the middle, you can avoid getting wet.
Fuerza Bruta: Look Up is a unique experience. The show features high-energy trance music and various "artsy" visually interesting acts. The show is a bit interactive. The ushers move you around during the show, which takes place in the middle of a standing crowd of people.
I heard that you can get wet, and I was trying to avoid it through the whole show. It wasn't until the end that you really had the opportunity to get wet. At the end of the show, the actors all came out and started dancing with everyone. I got pulled into a conga-line that ended up going right into the rain shower. I managed to run out quickly without getting too wet.
I thought the show was a bit short, and I also didn't think it was quite worth the price. There was no story, it was just a visually appealing show, and can be quite a bit of fun if you like to get in and dance.
