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.

ARCO are:

Neil Luck – Voice and Objects
Adam de la Cour – Guitar and Voice
Chihiro Ono – Violin
Benedict Taylor – Viola
Sam Rice – Doublebass
Tom Jackson and Ivan Solano – Clarinets
Satoko Doi – Organ
Takahiro Tomatsu – The spirit of Hercules
+ special guests
