After a successful opening in Tokyo, the all-new Fuerza Bruta: WA! Wonder Japan Experience – which was created especially for Japan – continues to wow crowds day in and day out. For those of you who haven’t seen it already, the show is an explosion of fun, showcasing a different take on Japanese culture from director and creator Diqui James’ unique point of view. The audience continues to be a mix of visitors and locals alike, including a special group of foreign global representatives and guests from different countries around the world. What did they think about the show? We check in with a few of them from Mexico, Ireland, Greece, Russia, Micronesia and Kosovo to find out more...

What did you think of the show, Fuerza Bruta: WA! Wonder Japan Experience?

H.M. from Kosovo:
In one word, it was ’stunning’! The stage set, the sound, the lighting that was like projection mapping, the performance and the way Japanese elements were incorporated, were all perfect. I was really excited by all the fantastical scenes which were like nothing I have ever seen before.

Karen Gonzalez Urbina from Mexico:
Great performance. It was very powerful, energetic and creative. It was a pretty interesting experience to see the way Argentinian artists express the concept of Japanese “Wa”. I also loved the interactive experience of the show.

M.H. from Spain:
I was simply overtaken by the force and power of the show. I was immediately pulled into the show at the first scene, where the man wearing samurai armour was running. The fusion of “Wa”, silence and movement was just magical.

Mekdachi Khalil from Lebanon:
It was my first time seeing the show and I enjoyed every second of it! There is no doubt I would see it again and recommend it to others.

K.H. from Greece:
It was the first time that I had seen this kind of performance and it was really interesting to see how Argentinians put together something in a Japanese style. Throughout the show I was excited and kept wondering what would come next. It was also nice that the audience standing on the floor were incorporated into the show as it unfolded.

Probably the people climbing the walls.

Kaita Richard Fritz and Miki Vivian Fritz from Micronesia:
I was impressed and could not take my eyes off the performers wearing kimono and dancing while rotating vertically.

Which part of the performance did you find particularly interesting or unique?

H.M. from Kosovo:
In terms of uniqueness, I would say the part with the pool. I was on the second floor so I couldn’t look up from underneath, but it was interesting to see the mechanism from the top down. It must look like a pool when people look at it from below, but in actuality, there is not that much water in the set.

It was amazing that they were able to exhibit such dynamic movements despite of that. Seeing the transparent trampoline-like floor move and women diving into vigorously flowing water was exhilarating! 

Tatiana Mokretsova from Russia:
It was so unique and nice to see the audience have an opportunity to enjoy the show from inside being part of the show! Especially in a powerful show like this!

K.H. from Greece:
The pool scene was original, new, and totally different from any other type of performance. The water on the ceiling and the movement of people that could be observed through the thin sheet and other parts was completely unexpected and I was very impressed.

Would you see the show again or recommend it to your friends?

Karen Gonzalez Urbina from Mexico:
Yes, sure, no doubt! I’d love to go again with friends. My friends were amazed by the photos I posted on Facebook. 

M.H. from Spain:
If I were younger, I would like to see it again from the standing area. I would definitely recommend the show to my friends! 

Kaita Richard Fritz and Miki Vivian Fritz from Micronesia:
I enjoyed the show and would recommend it to my friends who are around my age — in their 20s. I think they would really enjoy Fuerza Bruta!
