Anna Sokolow at The Place 1971

A gem from our archives: a film for long-forgotten TV arts show Review captures a visit to The Place c1971 from the great American choreographer Anna Sokolow.

It gives a strong sense of what The Place was like in those early days, and features Bob Cohan, Patricia Hutchinson Mackenzie, Robin Howard, Clover Roope and more.

It concludes with a studio performance of extracts from Sokolow's "Scenes from the music of Charles Ives" performed by Robert Powell, Siobhan Davies and the rest of London Contemporary Dance Theatre.
