Executive summary: Dance teacher for Bowie, Kate Bush
A cult-status dance performer and teacher, who studied with Marcel Marceau in the 50s before starting his own company in 1968. Kemp has crept into mainstream awareness through association with his former pupils David Bowie (who is also an ex-lover) and Kate Bush. His performances are a strange mix of mime, Kabuki, and oddball British comedy. He also made an appearance in Derek Jarman's film Sebastiane (1976).
