The Roundhouse & Kindred Partners announce the return of Fuerza Bruta with their brand-new show AVEN

After 10 long years, Fuerza Bruta is finally returning to its London home – the Roundhouse – with its incredible new show – AVEN, a rollercoaster ride of euphoria, optimism and desire beyond the imagination. 

Fuerza Bruta brings a unique, club-theatre, experience to audiences through a spectacle of dance, music, movement, and passion that fills hearts with collective joy.

AVEN is a celebration of adventure and paradise. A place that exists in our minds. A space without a floor, without boundaries. This is a show that seeks collective happiness and pushes everyone’s limits to find it. It sweeps the audience up and envelops them with an unstoppable force. This is a show that will leave everyone breathless for more. This strictly limited 8 week run begins on July 9 running until 1 September 2024. Tickets are on sale now.

AVEN is created by Fuerza Bruta Artistic Director Diqui James with music and musical direction by Gaby Kerpel.

Diqui James saidWe have spent a long time dreaming and building a show. A show that completely changed when we came back to rehearsals after the pandemic. In AVEN we abandoned any note of darkness, we got rid of every trace of intellectual or aggressive strife. And we decided to create “the happiest show we have ever done.” 

AVEN is the show that demanded us the most effort from its conception to the grand premier. For 5 years we poured all of our joy and passion into AVEN, heedless of all else.

We return to the Roundhouse to let it overflow with Fuerza Bruta. To give it an emotional embrace. We yearn for it to be an immoderate reunion. The reunion of two kindred souls. Once more, we want to make those columns dance.  We missed it. Although, in truth, we never actually left the Roundhouse, we are always returning.”

Marcus Davey, CEO and Artistic Director, Roundhouse said; “I am so delighted we’re bringing the truly breathtaking new show from Fuerza Bruta to the Roundhouse next summer. Ever since Fuerza Bruta reopened the Roundhouse in 2006 we’ve been their European home, selling out night after night to hundreds of thousands of people over the years. I can’t wait to welcome those people back who already love the company, as well as introduce new audiences to the incredible spectacle.”  

Fuerza Bruta was born in 2003, when Diqui James, creative director, Gaby Kerpel, music composer, Alejandro García, technical director and Fabio D´aquila, general coordinator, all former members of the theatre company De La GUarda, came together to form a new company. After months of creating and producing their own ideas, in the year 2005 the show Look Up premiered in Buenos Aires, and a year later reopened newly refurbished, remodelled, rebuilt Roundhouse and was a smash hit.  

Created in 2022/23 AVENsees the passion and experiences the past two decades brought together. The show premiered at a new venue in Buenos Aires; Sin Piso, a space prepared for everything to happen, a factory of theatricality, music and celebration. Designed and built to continue experimenting and welcoming artistic challenges from all over the world.

Fuerza Bruta’s AVEN will be at Roundhouse, Chalk Farm Rd, Chalk Farm, London NW1 8EH from 9 July – 1 September. Tickets are £49 (Concessions £20 Tue – Thur; £25 Fri – Sun). Visit to book now.
