Have you ever stood for 80 minutes watching an aerial show above your head that was part dance club and part theatrical? If not then you’re missing out. You gotta head down to the Daryl Roth Theater to catch a performance of Fuerza Bruta.
I recently attended the show with my son and Rebecca from The Mommy Sauce & her son. At first, we were a bit hesitant about standing for 80 minutes. Our boys can barely sit for 10 minutes so we were wondering how this would turn out. We came prepared in our comfiest shoes and was ready for whatever. And boy was it an astounding show!
The music was heart pounding with the beating of the drums and the energetic singing. The show is above, around & in between the crowds. You move along with each performance without a moment’s hesitation because you eagerly want to see what they will dare to do next. I couldn’t believe that people can fly high and have no fears! They are literally hung by ropes, securely obviously, but they are swinging high above us as if it’s the norm. The energy you felt from the performers was intense. You could feel how much they loved to put on this show.
The boys were definitely in the mix of the things. They were jumping, dancing & in awe. I think their favorite part was when the girls were in a huge slip n slide above their heads and were waving to them. There were a few times that my son would say “Mom her undies are showing.” I was just glad it wasn’t that kind of show. When it finally ended, we were left on a feeling of euphoria.

I recommend going with flats or sneakers. Check your coat in and ladies carry a light purse. You will be moving around with the crowd. I usually can’t take standing for long periods of time due to vertigo but I was totally fine. It wasn’t too hot in the theater.
