FUERZA BRUTA: LOOK UP Official Trailer


(video from http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=taBAtxasWto)
"FUERZA BRUTA: LOOK UP is a non-stop collision of dynamic music, visceral emotion, and kinetic aerial imagery.
Featuring mind – blowing visual effects that must be seen to be believed – a man running full throttle through a series of moving walls, women frolicking in a watery world suspended just inches above the audience – FUERZA BRUTA: LOOK UP is a theatrical experience that floods the senses. Come experience a 360° heart-pounding theatrical experience!" (text from: http://fuerzabrutanyc.com/wordpress/get-the-buzz/)

Food Walking Tours in NY!!!

If you love to try different kinds of food, the Food Walking Tours are a great way to get into the gastronomic universe!

Check the different Tours below and "Bon App├ętit!!!"

"ASTORIA, QUEENS, WALKABOUT
Although the tour is billed as “Around the World in 80 Minutes,” its creator, Susan Birnbaum, doesn’t like to be a stickler for the clock when visiting Greek, Italian, Colombian, Egyptian, and Lebanese restaurants and shops along 30th Avenue. “I just couldn’t resist the pun!” she says. The eight-stop trip is popular with adventurous tourists and locals who don’t know that Astoria offers more than Greek treats. SusanSez NYC Walkabouts, meet at 30th Ave at 31st St, Astoria, Queens (917-509-3111, dbsystemsgroup.com/susansez). Apr 24 at 11am, $40. 

BOWERLY LANE CHOCOLATE TOUR
The sugar high that comes from visiting five haute chocolate spots along the Bowery is significant, but this two-hour walking tour is meant to work it off along the way. Taste confections flavored with chili, paprika, ginger, wasabi, tequila, Cuban rum and even absinthe. New Chocolate Tours, meet at 63 E 4th St between Bowery and Second Ave (917-292-0680, sweetwalks.com). Thu–Sun 3:30pm, $50 in advance.

CHINATOWN, BROOKLYN
Liz Young’s four-hour marathon tour treks through Brooklyn to explore a lesser-known culinary enclave straddling Sunset Park and Bay Ridge. The Chinese food is mostly Cantonese, notable for what Young calls “refined, delicate flavors.” The tour starts with Hong Kong–style dim sum, with curious eaters noshing on dumplings, Chinese tarts and stuffed buns, rice porridge, bubble tea, scallion pancakes and, for the truly adventurous, chicken feet or fin soup. Liz Young Culinary Tours (646-286-8065, lizyoungtours.com). Mon–Fri 10am–2pm; Sat, Sun 9am–1pm, or by request. $125.
 
A TASTE OF HELL
On this seven-stop, three-hour tour through Hell’s Kitchen, expect a midtown melting pot of eats, including empanadas, milk shakes, secret-spot chorizo tacos, pork buns, biscotti and apple pie. Bonus: On cold days, local tour guide Moira Campbell swings by the little-known 414 Hotel, a bed-and-breakfast where you can rest your legs by a cozy fireplace. Rum & Blackbird Tasting Tours (212-209-3370, rumandblackbird.com). Sat, Sun 1:30am–2:30pm, 3–6pm; $49.

TASTE OF HARLEM TOUR
“I feel sometimes like I’m Mr. U.N.,” says tour leader Neal Shoemaker, who guides school kids and tourists through Harlem. “I mean, Kentucky kids eating authentic African food? It’s so cool! They’re not going to get that in Louisville.” The mix of African, African-American, Spanish and Jamaican edibles won’t merely fill the stomach, he promises; they’ll help illustrate Harlem’s diverse culture as well. Harlem Heritage Tours, meet at 104 Malcolm X Blvd (Lenox Ave) between 115th and 116th Sts (212-280-7888, harlemheritage.com). Sat 10, Apr 24 12–3pm, $39.—Amy Zavatto"

Beautiful work!!

Looking different kinds of blog on the internet, I found one which is really special!
Ricardo Marins is a brasilian guy who loves circus since he was 10 years old. Also, he loves drawing, building little replicas and art.
When he was 16 years old, he watched "Saltimbancos", and had the great ideia: to make a Cirque du Soleil´s replica.
He did a great job! When "Alegria" was in Brazil, the first maquete stayed on the backstage and now it is in Montreal! The second he´s just presented to Quidam!
Here you have some pictures, enjoy this beautiful work!
