ARCO present a special live preview performance broadcast of Neil Luck’s Herakles! It explores the myth of Hercules, retold through wild allegorical misinterpretations, mistranslations and miscreancy. Written and directed by Neil Luck, Herakles! is music theatre gone awry; a cultural black-hole drawing-in and distending ancient and modern embodiments of the Greek demi-god. A tasteful fusion of Apollodorus, Schwarzenegger, Terayama, Hendrix, Disney, Arcane British Folk Rituals and Aragoto-style Kabuki plays. Performed by ARCO. Herakles! features as part of Tête à Tête Opera Festival, King’s Place, on Saturday 9 August at 8pm and Sunday 10 August at 4pm; and at Milton Keynes Art Gallery on 11 October at 7.30pm.
