Fuerza Bruta began performances Oct. 11, 2007, and opened Oct. 24 at the former home of De La Guarda, the Daryl Roth Theatre. Originally scheduled as a limited engagement, Fuerza Bruta is now enjoying an open-ended run.
The production has also extended its Boy's Night performances, which features "remixed scenes and choreography – putting the men of Fuerza Bruta in the pool and at the fore," according to press notes. The Boy's Nights will now be offered twice a month, on the first and third Friday.
Oct. 23 marks the launch of Fuerza Bruta's previously announced DJ Connection, which welcomes a series of guest DJs — including Boy & Soul's Danny Krivit — to spin during a special extended version of the show, on Thursday evenings.
Krivit will be the first DJ to take part in Fuerza Bruta's DJ Connection Oct. 23 at 8 PM. Additional DJs include Juan MacLean, Derrick May, David Waxman and Dave Hollands.
De La Guarda's Diqui James (co-founder/co-creator) and Gaby Kerpel (composer/musical director) again "push the boundaries of theatrical creativity, motivation and innovation," according to a press statement. Fuerza Bruta (Brute Force) "breaks free from the confines of spoken language and theatrical convention [where] both performers and audience are immersed in an environment that floods the senses, evoking pure visceral emotion in a place where individual imagination soars." Featured performers include Hallie Bulleit, Freddy Bosche, Daniel Case, Michael Hollick, Joshua Kobak, Gwyneth Larsen, Tamara Levinson, Rose Mallare, Brooke Miyasaki, Jon Morris, Jason Novak, Marlyn Ortiz and Kepani Salgado-Ramos.
Fuerza Bruta first played in Buenos Aires in 2005 and has also performed in Lisbon, London, Buenos Aires and Bogota with runs in Berlin and Hamburg to follow.
Concert Productions International (CPI), Ozono Productions and David Binder Productions produce the New York run.
