The following video is from a 50th anniversary performance of Al Hansen‘s “Red Dog for Freddie Herko”, performed by the Second Front on the Odyssey Simulator on October 25, 2014.

The original performance was created for dancer Fred Herko by the American artist Al Hansen (father of artist, Second Front member and BBMC alumni Bibbe Hansen). This  video, a re-iteration of All Hansen’s original, was released on the fiftieth anniversary of Fred Herko’s death.

Here is a link to an article about Fred Herko, published this month in the Guardian: The life and dramatic death of an avant-garde hero
