I, as Hilde Holger's daughter, along with Albert Thimann, recorded Lindsay Kemp reminiscing on my mother who was his first dance teacher. It was in 2002, when he was performing in his London season at the Peacock Theatre, a year after Holger died. The interview also includes a humorous comment by Cecilia Keen, another dancer who worked with Hilde Holger in the nineteen sixties, and who performed with Lindsay.
While still working with Mme Holger, Lindsay started to teach actor director Tony Tanner, Rock singer David Bowie, and the Oxford Playhouse Company. His career soon after took off with startling speed.
Hilde Holger was one of a handful of expressionist dancers that were in Exile in Britain from Austria and Germany. She trained with Gertrud Kraus under Gertrud Bodenwieser in Vienna. Some of her colleagues in Britain included Rudolph Von Laban, Kurt Joos, Sigurd Leder, Ernest Berk, Lillian Harmel and Stella Mann. Holger is also known for her pioneering work in Inclusive Dance, which is so widespread at this point.
