The American choreographer and dance director Donya Feuer has passed away. 31 October 1934 - 6 November 2011. From her obituary: "Donya Feuer was born in the USA, studied at the Juilliard School of Music and danced with Martha Graham 1952-1956. In the sixties she came to Sweden and was engaged at the Royal Dramatic Theater as a choreographer. She worked with directors such as Alf Sjöberg, but mostly with Ingmar Bergman. Their last collaboration was with "Maria
Stuart" in 2000. Donya Feuer also made films and was awarded prizes for her film "Dansaren" (The Dancer) in 1994."

I may add that my favorite work of hers was Bergman's TV production of "The Magic Flute" from 1975.

The funeral will take place 11 November at 11.00 o'clock at the Jewish Cemetery in Stockholm.
