Neshamah is currently focusing on our 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. Our next performance is at ShapeShifter Lab on Monday, May 22nd at 7:00 PM. Tickets are $10.
