Fuerzabruta – a giant, joyful slab of carnivalito-inspired theatre – is as fun as it gets. This updated version of the original Argentinian work tremendously re-imagines the Roundhouse’s space via a series of huge, dreamy images that continually out-do themselves.
Each of these odd, wildcard movement pieces – which at first seem incongruous – later glue together and equate to images of crazed modern loneliness.
What is left post-party is not an understanding of characters in a play but a frenzied sense of the need to party on, to make fun of life’s discontinuity by way of massive art. Asides the prettiness, Fuerzabruta’s mantra is to campaign for togetherness, by drenching the audience in both water and love.
