About Neshamah


Neshamah is an NYC based dance company founded by Artistic Director Hannah Cohen. Through a collaborative process that maintains awareness for the unique possibilities of the moment, Neshamah utilizes structures paired with the organic movement of dancers to develop sympathetically resonant choreography that contemplates metaphysical ideas. Currently, we are focusing on their evening length piece in collaboration with AirSticks co-creator Alon Ilsar. We've titled this new piece Voyager. Voyager uses the narrative and sounds of NASA's Voyager I and II to explore the shoreline where science and art converse. As a company, we've been studying many examples of those shorelines and derive inspiration from Carl Sagans book Cosmos.
