Herakles! Is a new piece of music-theatre drawing on an eclectic range of influences from contemporary classical music, concrete poetry, slapstick comedy, free improvisation, Kabuki theatre and Broadway showstoppers, all filtered through the highly idiosyncratic and avant-garde texts of Richard Foreman. A tasteful fusion of Appolodorus, Schwarzenegger, Tereyama, Hendrix, Disney and Arcane British Folk Rituals. A surreal and absurdist take on the Herculean labours this Herakles! is music theatre gone awry; a cultural black-hole drawing-in, distending, and ultimately obliterating ancient and modern embodiments of the Greek demi-god. Performed by some of the UK's most exciting young musicians and performers, Herakles! will delight, baffle, and enlighten in equal measure.


ARCO, Neil Luck (voice/objects), Chihiro Ono (violin), Benedict Taylor (viola), Sam Rice (double-bass), Adam de la Cour (electric guitar/voice), Tom Jackson (clarinet)
