COFFEE IN TOWN
A production by the Palestinian Circus School. Directed By Paul Evans
The new creation of 2017 was directed by Paul Evans from the UK and funded by the European Union under the program: United in Circus.
About the show:
People come together in the same space and time, sharing a collective experience, but each has their own story to tell. Some enjoy the coming together, others seek a moment alone with their own thoughts and feelings. Ultimately it is their joy, celebration and humanity that brings them together, to share in a coffee and a memory or two. The possibilities that they hold inside give us a pause, to join with them, breathe and live life without limit.
Using circus, theatre and choreography, Coffee in Town is a family show about people, what they have in common and what they have to offer the world.
Vision and direction: Paul Evans
Performed by: Ahmad AbuTaleb, Mohammed AbuTaleb, Noor AbuRob, Khalid Miqdadi, Hamada Touqan, Alaa AbuRob, and Esam Abu Snaineh
Technician: Alaa Jayousi
