biography fascinates me. & I adore finding faces which keep reappearing over the years.
I never met Fred Herko but rememeber Jean-Claude van Itallie & others talk abt him. & then in the matter of 3 days he's emergd. first there's footage of him in Ric Burns' Warhol doc. then he's referencd in a Jerry Tallmer article.
as subject the dancer/choreographer pops up most memorably in the work of Diane DiPrima. but he also appears in writing by Jackson MacLow & Ray Johnson Jack Marshall & Michael Smith.
