GLOBALLY ACCLAIMED ARGENTINEAN TROUPE FUERZA BRUTA TO HEADLINE SINGAPORE NIGHT FESTIVAL 2019
Singapore, 20 June 2019 – Having performed to more than six million spectators in sold-out shows in over 60 cities across 34 countries, renowned Argentinean troupe Fuerza Bruta will headline the 12th edition of the Singapore Night Festival. For three nights only, Fuerza Bruta invites everyone to step into their uninhibited and unforgettable world with a theatrical immersion that promises to flood the senses.
Festival Director Angelita Teo said, “Over the years, the Singapore Night Festival has established itself as the region’s key platform for local and international artists to come together, create, collaborate and present an amazing experience for our festival-goers. Fuerza Bruta is no stranger to Singapore and their performance this year will be a homecoming of sorts seven years after they first took the festival by storm. We are delighted to have them back with us this year, and look forward to yet another riveting, never-before-seen performance.”
Fuerza Bruta, which means “brute force” in Spanish, presented three acts in the 2012 edition of Singapore Night Festival. The troupe charmed festival-goers with dancers performing in a suspended translucent pool, acrobats challenging gravity against a massive foil curtain, and a celebratory aerial performance which rained confetti onto a rousing street audience.

The ticketed Singapore show invites festival-goers to step into new dimensions as Fuerza Bruta takes their arena experience outdoors from 29 to 31 August 2019. The show opens with brave performers tumbling through secret openings from a giant bubble towards audiences, gliding across a bouncy sheet above audiences, and swimming through a giant air tunnel to get up-close-and-personal with the audience. The energy of this segment is amplified with a backdrop of laser projections and specially composed music.
In the second act, aerial artists take to the skies and everyone in the audience is given a front-row experience to the dynamic performance. In the style of immersive theatre, Fuerza Bruta encourages audiences to respond spontaneously, be it interacting directly with the bulbous set, reaching up to high-five performers, or even breaking out into mass dancing to the groovy music. Expect a 360-degree sensory theatre party complete with thumping percussion beats, mind-blowing lighting visual effects and confetti where festival-goers can immerse themselves in the experience and find out what it means to be brutally happy.
Diqui James, Creator and Artistic Director of Fuerza Bruta said, “We absolutely loved being part of the Singapore Night Festival in 2012, which was truly a one-of-a-kind event with the different programmes and performances presented. It was an amazing experience for us to perform on the streets and to see festival goers laughing and enjoying the moment. This year, we are excited to return to the festival with an even more immersive experience and to connect with the audience on a deeper level through up-close interactions and out-of-this-world visual effects. Gear yourself up for an exciting, extreme and intense performance with us.”
The Fuerza Bruta performance will take place at Cathay Green from 29 to 31 August 2019, with three shows per night at 8.30pm, 9.45pm and 11.00pm. Tickets cost $15 and early bird tickets are available via SISTIC at $12 from today until 19 July. More details can be found in Annex A.
