Fuerzabruta!

How to describe this show...it's sort of like cirque du soleil but...very different.

It's at the Roundhouse near Chalk Farm at the moment, though not for much longer (info here), if you can get tickets I fully recommend you do. It was just so incredibly awesome.

I filed in with the rest of the audience, not quite knowing what to expect, when a light behind me came on...and the music started.

The music is amazing. It's full of energy, and sets the pace for the show.

Things happen without you really knowing what's going on, lights come on, illuminating different parts of the show and then someone is on the walls!

Pools lower themselves above you as the performers go from serene water dancing to crazy throwing themselves around - it's CRAZY!

When the pools turn up try and get underneath them for when it lowers, we were in the corner so didn't get as good a view as some of the others.

This bit was really cool, the sheet has to be passed over the audience and then inflated, the performers run around on top of it and come through...

There is so much more than I took pictures of because you don't want to spend all your time there taking pictures, believe me, you just want to marvel at all the awesome things going on around you. Near the end there was rain...and Ben didn't hesitate to drag me into it to dance, we were soaked, covered in confetti and generally pretty happy! It was such a good show!
