6. Spradlin has a premiere of her own, at New York Live Arts. g-h-o-s-t-c-r-o-w-n (October 8–11) is part ofCarla Peterson’s final curatorial season, one of lots of tempting offerings, including a new work by Neil Greenberg (December 3–6) and Lang Dance (December 12–13), a partnership with the New School’s Eugene Lang College that features work by Jeanine Durning and Reggie Wilson and the student-choreographed results of a research course with Sarah Michelson (whoa). And then there’s this intriguing tidbit tucked into the season press release: “An announcement regarding the search for a new director of programs will be made in the coming months.”
Danielle Goldman performs – 7. What do you guys know about Fred Herko? If you’re anything like me, shamefully little, considering all he was involved with: Judson Dance Theater, Warhol’s Factory, Happenings, the New York Poets Theatre, and on and on in the New York avant-garde. He died young, fifty years ago (YES, this is also an anniversary event. Sorry.) And this fall there will be a week of events dedicated to him, including “Fred Herko: A Crash Course,” a symposium at NYU’s Performance Studies on October 25.
