Acclaimed Israeli born modern dancer Ze’eva Cohen came to the US in1963 as a Juilliard student, and went on to perform and choreograph works in the US, Israel, and throughout Europe. She was the founder of the Princeton University dance department in 1969, and led the program for the next forty years.
Much of Ze’eva’s creativity is born of her Israeli/Yemenite heritage and early years in Israel. Her choreography ranges from the strengths and influences of Biblical women to views of contemporary life everywhere. In this film Ze’eva Cohen’s beauty and grace, humor and compassion, are highlighted by her story telling.
