Return of Aerial Spectacle Fuerza Bruta Wayra Opens Off-Broadway Tonight
08 Jul 2014
The Off-Broadway return of Fuerza Bruta Wayra, an expanded and updated version of the Argentinian spectacle that had its New York City premiere in 2007, officially opens July 8 after previews that began June 27 at the Daryl Roth Theatre.
According to producers, "The culmination of the De La Guarda legacy, Wayra takes the audience on an 80-minute thrill ride from beginning to end, with an extra 20 minutes of heart thrashing fun, fast paced and upbeat live music, on-stage musicians, and breathtaking aerial displays. The newly designed set and scenes are sure to present fans of the previous incarnations (and new fans alike) with fresh experiences and guarantee that Wayra will be a theatrical thrill that floods the senses."
S2BN Entertainment and OZONO Productions present the production that features live music as part of the event.
Holed up in a seedy motel on the edge of the Mojave Desert, two former lovers unpack the deep secrets and dark desires of their tangled relationship, passionately tearing each other apart. Led by director Daniel Aukin (Back Back Back at MTC, 4,000 Miles), Tony winner Nina Arianda (Venus in Fur at MTC, Born Yesterday) and Sam Rockwell (A Behanding in Spokane, The Way Way Back) bring an explosive intensity to Sam Shepard’s (Buried Child, True West) landmark myth of the new Wild West.
