Remembering Rosemary Butcher, 1947—2016

 

Rosemary_Butcher edit

Rosemary Butcher’s death was announced on 14th July 2016.

Like many others, all of us at ID have been profoundly affected by the experience of working with her over the years and by the quiet power and lasting resonance of her teaching and choreography.  She was unique in the conceptual clarity of her work and in her ability to identify how ideas subtly transform and re-form through the particular attentiveness of her dancers.

We send our deepest condolences to her family.
