J. F. from Micronesia:
I really enjoyed the music, which was a combination of Japanese drums and the flute during the show. Also, the part where the performers dressed up in traditional samurai outfits and performed energetic runs was very impressive.

Eva Martin from Spain:
I really enjoyed the part of the show with the performers in the transparent swimming pool. Seeing them enjoying and playing with the water from below is a very unique point of view and made me feel like I was enjoying myself too.

Victoria Valero, Japan-based artist:
The whole show was unique. It is like a futuristic theatre where the spectator is in the middle of everything that is happening and you really get to enjoy the show up front. A very interesting part was the actors walking upwards on the stage wall and falling from above in groups making circles. Also, having the rails on the floor of the stage that permit the dancers to spin, dance and move around while being attached to a moving platform was amazing.

Would you like to see the show again or recommend it to others?

Yes! I would like to see Fuerza Bruta’s next show and I have already recommended this one to my friends. Congratulations on Fuerza Bruta: WA! Wonder Japan Experience!
