Richard Caswell, a former Rambert Stage Director, has passed away
We are saddened to hear of the passing of Rambert Stage Director and lighting designer Richard Caswell, in Blackpool, England on 26 February 2016.
Richard entered the Company on 29 April 1968 and left in 1973 to work internationally, including with Nederlands Dans Theatre. He re-joined the Company a number of times during the 1970’s. He worked with Norman Morrice and Marie Rambert to light the modern works that the Company were experimenting with in the transition from ballet to contemporary, including Glen Tetley’s Ricercare and early Christopher Bruce works.
John Chesworth, Rambert’s artistic director between 1974 and 1980, said that Richard ‘was a most talented lighting designer’. We are grateful for the generous donation of material to Rambert Archive that Richard has made which will ensure that his contribution to dance heritage is celebrated for years to come.
