Update 27/3/2020: Postponed to Mar 2021

After a world tour that included nine successful years off-Broadway in New York, Fuerza Bruta will make its Hong Kong debut May 12 at Freespace, the contemporary performance space at the heart of the West Kowloon Art Park. Debuting in the Fragrant Harbour as Fuerza Bruta: Look up Hong Kong 2020, this breath-taking spectacle is with a special VIP gala premiere set for May 13.

An Unforgettable, Interactive, Multi-Sensory Theatre Extravaganza
With worldwide success in 59 cities and 34 countries, and with performances reaching more than 6 million people, Fuerza Bruta is a spectacle that needs to be seen to be believed. Translated from Spanish as ‘brute force’ Fuerza Bruta redefines timeless storytelling, transcends the conventions and limitations of language with a multi-sensory kaleidoscope of cultural and societal themes, and breathtakingly narrates through the universal prose of colour, sound and movement. It’s no surprise that after almost 6,000 performances, Fuerza Bruta has a cult global following that counts among its celebrity supporters Usher, who incorporated elements of the show into the music video of his acclaimed hit Scream, and even performed in Fuerza Bruta shows as part of the promotion of his album Looking 4 Myself.

Forged in Buenos Aires in 2003 by creator Diqui James and members of the Argentinian theatrical troupe De La Guarda, Fuerza Bruta is potent yet infinitely ethereal, with each chapter of its enigmatic story delivered in a frenzy of music, light, acrobatics, and dance, creating a four-dimensional sensory symphony that evolves and continuously reengages the audience, who play the roles of both participant and witness.

With Hong Kong steadily becoming the arts and cultural hub of Northern Asia, the city already hosts the internationally recognised Art Basel event, an annual showcase that now anchors a city-wide arts month. The arrival of the West Kowloon Cultural District (WKCD) and the reopening of the Hong Kong Museum of Art heralds a new era of arts appreciation for the Fragrant Harbour. As such, Fuerza Bruta: Look up Hong Kong will be one of the first multiple-day-shows to be held at The Box, a newly developed space at the heart of Freespace that’s now the city’s largest blackbox theatre.
