Fuerzabruta Review

This was the first time that this "multi-sensory" show Fuerzabruta has been hosted in a tent. Previously it has been in large buildings.

Most of the show - rigs, props, set - hangs from the roof, including a floating swimming pool (which they managed to get back in action after the police slashed it with knives during a drugs search).
