May 26, 2016: A tribute to Warhol star and Judson dancer, Fred Herko, was danced last weekend by Jamie Atherton at the Siobhan Davies Dance studio in a dance called Possibilities for a Pleasant Outing. The dance was performed on a rollerskate as per Herko's dance on one skate performed in Concert No. 6 of the Judson Dance Theater (lights by Billy Name) and as a tribute to Warhol's Rollerskate film, starring Herko. (Callie Angell notes in the first volume of the film cat. rais., "Herko apppears in a number of Warhol's earliest films from 1963, including Kiss, Dance Movie (or Rollerskate), Jill and Freddy Dancing and two of the three versions of Haircut." p. 93)
