Gill Clarke

We are greatly saddened by the death on 15 November 2011 of Gill Clarke, MBE, pioneering independent dance artist, co-director of Independent Dance (ID) and co-founder of Dance UK.

Sarah Whatley, Editor of Journal of Dance & Somatic Practices, remembers Gill:

Gill Clarke was an astonishing artist, teacher and writer. She inspired many of us and her insights and hard work over thee decades have made a colossal impact on dance in the UK, helping to shape the current field, particularly Independent Dance.  Those of us who had the privilege to know Gill and to work with her will take time to come to terms with her no longer being present, but her work will live on.  She was a wise and gifted artist, an exquisite dancer and a friend to so many of us.  Gill - we mourn you but celebrate your magnificent contribution to dance.

Gill was a highly valued member of the Editorial Board for


. We will miss her enormously.
