The Life and Death of Fred Herko by Natalie Liconti
October 16 @ 8:00 pm EDT
An event every week that begins at 8:00 pm on Sunday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday, repeating until October 20, 2019
Step into an alternate future – somewhere between an intergalactic house party and Andy Warhol’s Factory.
In 1964, at the age of 28, a queer dancer named Fred Herko jetéd out the window of his ex-lover’s apartment – naked, and high on speed. THE LIFE AND DEATH OF FRED HERKO is an interdisciplinary, site-specific performance that sheds light on a footnoted figure in queer history.
Together we invite audiences to reimagine the dancer’s infamous last moments, finding utopian potential in his tragic story.
