Boys Night, which puts the men of Fuerza Bruta: Look Up center stage with remixed scenes and choreography in the suspended Mylar pool, will feature special guest DJ Lina, who returns after appearing as part of the previous DJ Connection series. The extended performance will begin at 10 PM.
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 "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, Dusty Giamanco, John Hartzell, Gwyneth Larsen, Tamara Levinson, Rose Mallare, Brooke Miyasaki, Jon Morris and Marlyn Ortiz.
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. 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. Tickets to Fuerza Bruta: Look Up at the Daryl Roth Theatre, 20 Union Square East (at 15th Street), can be purchased by calling (212) 239-6200 or at the box office. A limited number of $25 (cash-only) rush tickets will be made available two hours prior to curtain.
