Transcend generations of Jewish thought and emotion through a mosaic of music, dance, and color when Israeli singing sensation Noa Dori joins Keshet Chaim Dance Ensemble in Neshama: Stories of the Soul at the Thousand Oaks Civic Arts Plaza. Neshama features choreography by Keshet Chaim artistic director Eytan Avisar and guest choreographers Ilana Cohen and Tsion Marciano of Israel's Inbal Dance Theatre; original music is composed by Uri Ophir and Sharon Farber.

Neshama: Stories of the Soul celebrates the myths evoked by the city of Jerusalem for thousands of years, embracing biblical images as dramas of the soul. The full-length, multimedia performance is inspired by personal, spiritual journeys and enriched by thousands of years of Jewish legends, commentaries and religious texts. Through movement, music, song, visuals, and narration, the production sweeps through the millennia, beginning before the creation of the universe and ending in the present.


Neshama had its premiere to rave reviews at the Scottish Rite Auditorium last February and has been nominated for five Lester Horton Awards, for company performance, costumes, lighting and two for choreography. This show should not be missed!

Ticket prices range from $26.00 - $72.00.
