A hit acrobatic show is up and running again after a performance was abandoned when part of the set collapsed onto the audience.
Popular Argentinean show Fuerzabruta, which combines elements of circus and theatre, reopened at the Roundhouse in Chalk Farm Road, Chalk Farm, on Tuesday following Friday’s “extremely regrettable” incident.
Scheduled shows on Saturday and Sunday were cancelled as investigations went on into the moment when a large sail-like prop, upon which there were two aerial performers, fell onto the audience standing underneath. Four people including one performer suffered minor injuries.
The Roundhouse has confirmed that the segment featuring the sail has now been removed as the show continues its planned run until March 2.
A spokesman said: “The Roundhouse is committed to the safety and wellbeing of its audiences and undertakes rigorous risk assessments for all of the shows that take place here.
