British dancer and choreographer Nigel Charnock has died at the age of 52.

Nigel was diagnosed with cancer in June this year and lost his battle on Wednesday 1st August at St Christopher's Hospice in South London.

He was world renowned for his work and set up dance company DV8 in 1986, which took physical theatre to the next level, winning numerous awards for both stage and screen.

His piece, 'I'm Water I'm Weightless', can currently be seen at the National Theatre of Wales, and praise for him has come in from all over the world, with Malaysian dancer Mavin Khoo calling him "a genius" on his website.

Charnock combined improvisation and black humour, which was often autobiographical, and created unique and challenging theatre which dealt with his homosexuality, making him a stand-out in the world of dance.
