  • A Life lived in Dance - Goodbye to Sir Robert Cohan

    13 Jan 2021

    Robert Cohan, Founding Artistic Director of The Place, was a prolific choreographer, an utterly brilliant teacher and also a shrewd strategist. Single-handedly he changed the face of contemporary dance in this country. Well, perhaps not quite single-handedly, for it was Robin Howard, Founder of the Contemporary Dance Trust, who had the vision to invite Cohan to lead his as yet only dreamt-of new organisation comprising a Company, a School and a building which was to become known as The Place - Cohan bravely took up this invitation and contemporary dance in Britain was born.
