A popular theatre experience from South America is returning to London for a short run at the end of the month.
Fuerzabruta is back at London’s Roundhouse from December 27th to January 26th and is expected to be as popular as it was when it last visited the north London venue in 2006.
Translated as brute force, Fuerzabruta combines stunt action with amazing sets and special effects to create a show ideal for those staying at central London hotels who are looking for something out of the ordinary. Although, organisers are advising that it may not be suitable for very young children because of the use of strobe lighting and loud sound effects.
Guardian reviewer Michael Billington wrote in 2006 about the show’s amazing production.
“To put it simply, this is the art of the circus and the fairground raised to the highest level: a series of phantasmagoric stunts celebrating acrobatic daring.
“My own favourite moment came when a man and woman appeared clinging, like survivors of a shipwreck, to opposite sides of a vast spinning sail that occupied the central space of the Roundhouse,” explained Billington.
Tickets cost from £30 depending on performance times and the Roundhouse is close to Chalk Farm and Camden Town London Underground stations, so is ideal for those enjoying central London breaks.
The Roundhouse was built in 1847 as a railway engine shed but has now been transformed into one of the city’s most popular venues and hosts of a number of leading events such as the BBC Electric Proms and iTunes festivals.
