Héraclès is a creation by Rémy Yadan presented as part of the inauguration of the new French Institute in Italy, in the Salon d'Hercule at the Palazzo Farnese, headquarters of the French Embassy in Rome.
"This plastic and theatrical staging unfolds around the Herculean myth, in relation to the architectural and historical strength of the place. Apparitions glide by in luminous and musical escapes. From momentary petrification to magnified life, a sculpted splendour becomes the torment of duality, the choreography becomes bravery on the voice of a docked baritone. R.Y
