Donya Feuer
Birth: Oct. 31, 1934
Philadelphia County
Pennsylvania, USA
Death: Nov. 6, 2011
Stockholms lšn, Sweden

Ballerina, Choreographer. A pioneer of modern dance, she shall be remembered for her long collaboration with Swedish director Ingmar Bergman. Trained in New York at the Juilliard School and with the legendary Martha Graham, she joined Miss Graham's company and danced with them during a 1955 tour of Asia. Becoming part of New York's non-traditional dance scene, she was seen in Paul Taylor's 1957 "7 New Dances" and that same year partnered with Paul Sanasardo to found the Studio for Dance. The pair was to work with famed German dancer and choreographer Pina Bausch during the early portion of her career and in 1960 all three performed in "Phases of Madness". Miss Feuer emigrated to Sweden in 1963 to teach and to choreograph for the Royal Dramatic Theater; meeting Bergman in 1971 she was to begin a long association that produced works for both stage and screen. Among her more noted joint efforts with the great director were the television movies "The Magic Flute" (1975) and "Face to Face" (1976), while on her own she was to write and direct the 1995 documentary "The Dancer". In later years she returned to New York with a number of theatrical productions, earning particularly good reviews for a 1995 production of Shakespeare's "A Winter's Tale". Miss Feuer lived out her days in Stockholm and died of longstanding ulcerative colitis. (bio by: Bob Hufford)
