John Casserley, RIP

Recommended Posts

The New Zealand dancer and choreographer John Casserley has died at age 78.

Quote

On one return trip to New Zealand to stage his modern ballet Children of Adam with the New Zealand Opera and Ballet companies, he spoke of the need for New Zealanders to choreograph their own work "...or we're never going to have any indigenous work".

"There has to be an experimental fringe on the edge of ballet or we'll be transfixed on dying swans," he said in a newspaper interview.
