    Very sad news about the death at 80 of Lindsay Kemp, student of Marcel Marceau, teacher of David Bowie and Kate Bush and a truly legendary figure in the world of mime and dance. We are honoured that he appeared at LIMF’95 with Cinderella at Sadler’s Wells. Whenever we give a presentation about how the festival started, we always talk about Lindsay’s work and how influential it was.
