New Music-Theatre Written and Directed by Neil Luck Performed by ARCO

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, filtered through the highly idiosyncratic and avant-garde texts of Richard Foreman.

A surreal and absurdist take on the Herculean labours, this premiere performance from some of London’s most adventurous musicians will delight, baffle and enlighten in equal measure.
