One of the late, great artist known as David Bowie’s mentors has passed away. Lindsay Kemp, who was also a British dancer and choreographer passed away at age 80 years old in Tuscany, Italy on Saturday August 25th, 2018. Kemp, who was also a collaborator of David Bowie and who mentored him during his career and during his time in music will be greatly missed.

On Facebook, the announcement was first made by Nendi Pinto-Duschunsky, who was the director of the documentary titled Lindsay Kemp’s Last Dance that is expected to be released very soon in the future. He announced it on Facebook and confirmed that kemp died at his home after a day of rehearsing with his students. Nendi Pinto-Duschunsky had this to say in a comment; “He was very happy and it was very sudden.” Kemp was known as a world-renowned dancer and choreographer in the world of music and in Britain. Aside from his teachings in dancing and choreography, Kemp mentored Bowie when he was 19 years old in 1966. He was responsible for casting the pop legend in a production of Kemp’s Pierrot in Turqouise.

Kemp said when first meeting Bowie on BBC, “He came to my dressing room and he was like the archangel Gabriel standing there, I was like Mary. It was love at first sight,” “He was certainly multi-faceted, a chameleon, splendid, inspiring, a genius of a creature. But I did show him how to do it.” More importantly, he is also credited with helping Bowie craft the theatricality of his Ziggy Stardust persona. In fact, the choreographer and dancer appeared onstage during Bowie’s Ziggy Stardust Tour in 1972 and also starred in the 1972 video for “John, I’m Only Dancing.” Kemp later appeared in the 1973 horror classic The Wicker Man, a pair of Derek Jarman films, Todd Haynes’ Bowie-inspired Velvet Goldmine and Kate Bush’s 1993 short film The Line, The Cross and the Curse.
