What the Fuerzabruta?

When I went to see Fuerzabruta (the new guerrilla-style Cirque du Soleil from the creators of De La
Guarda) on Sunday night, I couldn’t help but think how many lawyers, insurance
agents, accountants and yes, producers, probably told them that there was no
way to do some of the things they wanted to do.

Kudos to the
creative team for not listening. 

And kudos to those
lawyers, insurance agents, accountants and yes, producers, for figuring out
solutions to new problems.

Because by doing
things that seem impractical, irrational, and dangerous, they created something
worth talking about.

And that’s the
best insurance policy a show can have.
