Sunrise Sunset departs from the scattered archival remains revolving around the life and work of American dancer and choreographer Fred Herko. Member of Judson Dance Theater and frequenter of Andy Warhol’s Factory, he famously ended his life with a flamboyant grand jeté out the window of an apartment in Greenwich Village, New York. Performed by two bodies, Sunrise Sunset revisits Herko’s incomplete archive and appears as an impressionistic portrait of his life, work, collaborations, and affinities. It draws a speculative horizon on which different materials and accounts by Andy Warhol, Jill Johnston, Elaine Summers, Diane di Prima and Herko himself are brought to life, extended and reimagined. Sunrise Sunset revisits Herko’s queer utopian spirit of the unfinished, the too-late and the not-yet-there, all between sunrise and sunset - a stretch of radiant glow.
