In 2024, breakdance will spring to the forefront of the international sporting scene. In Heracles on his head, choreographer and stage director Anne Nguyen proposes a meta-referential look at some of the issues raised by the event. She explores the values of sports and art, using the opportunity to reflect more broadly on our society.
In Heracles on his head, three breakdance champions, two men and one woman, are preparing for the future sports competition under the coaching of a trainer, who pushes them beyond their limits. Adhering to his (sometimes over-the-top) instructions, the three dancers train and lend themselves to themed battles. Strong-mindedness, competition strategy, development of physical capacity: the trainer prepares his athletes both meticulously and painstakingly.
