Tom Jobe

An inspirational dancer and choreographer in the late 1970s and 1980s in London. He attended Southern Methodist University before emigrating to Europe to begin his dance training with the Martha Graham influenced London Contemporary Dance School. From The Place in Euston he blossomed as a leading solo artist, and later choreographer with the London Contemporary Dance Theatre under the leadership of Robert Cohen. He created several works for that company at the Sadlers Wells Theatre and for many others. He was credited with the Greek Dance in Time Bandits for Terry Gilliam. Had his life been longer, he would undoubtedly have had an important career as a choreographer. Deciding instead to devote his remaining life to performing, he took a leading role in the London production of Chess and played the part of Sandy, a dancer in Magic, his first acting role and a brilliant screen debut with a potential way beyond what that material could support. Tall, red-headed with a flamboyant personality, his unashamedly camp demeanour and dazzling talent set him apart.
