Remembering Rosemary Butcher (1947-2016)

Taking time to read the obituaries for Rosemary Butcher this morning. I was fortunate enough to have a few sessions led by her when she was a lecturer at University of Surrey. I remember being completely intimidated at first..this legend of dance I’d only read about in my A level Dance studies. In the flesh she was gentle, calm, questioning. I also remember being caught off guard by her seemingly simple yet deep piece for the Place Prize. Without doubt a unique choreographer and influence on many today. Feeling grateful for the contribution she made through her life. Link to: An overview on obituaries available on
