Robert Cohan’s remarkable legacy is captured with seven solos from his final stage work. Amid stunning architecture and landscape, world-class dancers share intimate, choreographed conversations.  

Award-winning documentarian David Stewart's collaboration with Cohan, built on mutual trust and understanding, brings Cohan's ninety-five years of experience to Afternoon Conversations with Dancers: seven stories of isolation, loss and survival. 

With music by Nils Frahm and Olafur Arnolds and danced by artists from the Martha Graham Company, Royal Ballet, Phoenix Dance Theatre, New Movement Collective and Yorke Dance Project, these personal portraits are a unique opportunity to intimately experience Cohan’s final work.

Produced by Yorke Dance Project, under the directorship of long-time Cohan collaborator Yolande Yorke- Edgell, who joins us for a ScreenTalk, along with Stewart and Kenneth Tharp, Interim CEO of Eclipse Theatre, former Chief Executive of The Place and dancer with Cohan's celebrated London Contemporary Dance Theatre.
