Fuerzabruta — Spanish for Brute Force, is a show created by Diqui James. It is performed live from a gigantic mylar plastic water tank suspended above the standing-only audiences, if it sounds remotely bizarre, surprise not as it is the latest creation from the Argentinian production master behind Cirque de Soleil, De La Guarda, STOMP and the Blue Man Group.

O’Reilly, a native of Canada is better known by his iconic 2005 image of the emaciated fingers of a one-year-old child in Niger.

The New York Times has a nice coverage and more pictures about the show.
