In these, he offered meditative, meticulous deconstructions of familiar images, the performers’ slow, sometimes enigmatic gestures referencing the original works as if the movement had been refracted through a prism. Mr. Hoghe, impassive and a physical contrast to his dancers, was a constant but deliberately unemotional presence. This sort of juxtaposition was a frequent theme in his work.

“You could say that not much happens during “Boléro Variations,” Claudia La Rocco wrote in a 2009 review in The New York Times. “The performers execute beautifully wrought, often simple phrases to a series of powerful recordings.” But by the end, she noted, “rich worlds of intent and regret bloom within each action.”

In another work, “Pas de Deux,” created for Takashi Ueno in 2011, Mr. Hoghe offered the slow ceremonial donning of kimono sashes and a vision of the young dancer’s physical control and power set neutrally against his own frail body.

“I put onstage that vulnerability that we should always be conscious of,” not only in times of crisis, he said last year in response to a question about working during the pandemic.

Raimund Hoghe was born in Wuppertal on May 12, 1949. His mother, Irmhild Hoghe, a seamstress, was a widow who had a 10-year old daughter when she met Mr. Hoghe’s father, 15 years her junior. Mr. Hoghe never knew his father, who married another woman, although his parents continued to write to each other — letters he published in a book, “The Price of Love” (1984).

His mother, he said in interviews, always accepted the way he looked and believed he could forge his own path. “She often said there were worse things than a back like mine,” he said in a 2004 interview in Le Monde.
