: a condition in which people or things are closely united
Cohesion is about Baltimore's artists. We live here, we work here, we play here. We are part of the community, and we've seen a need to grow and prosper that community in as many ways as we can. As a theatre company, we love collaboration. We love immerse theatrical experiences. We love the old ways sitting on a stoop and talking to your neighbors, and the new ways of connecting instantly with the entire world.
Cohesion's mission is to showcase the unity that underlies much of what we consider separate. Society has a habit of creating distinctions: between classical and new works, between artistic disciplines, between companies, and between people of different race, class, and gender. Cohesion examines these distinctions through the lens of live theatre with the goal of reaching a deeper understanding of what makes us individuals and what makes us all human.
Cohesion actively seeks out other theatrical professionals, both individuals and organizations, and encourages cross promotion, co-production, and collaboration in every facet of the work we do. We believe passionately that when artists combine their talents and energies across disciplines and despite competitive tendencies, what is created becomes greater than the sum of its parts, and what would be a success for one becomes a triumph for all.
