The performance portrays the real experience of the Palestinian Circus School’s four advanced students (now trainers & performers). The show is a journey through the opposing demands they face, namely their circus dreams and their financial, “real life” responsibilities. Neither the society nor the families accept their desire to dedicate their lives to circus arts. In spite of this, the students are determined to change their reality and to pursue their dreams. The performance conveys this experience in a simple way: comedy and tragedy scenes happening between a small shop owner in Jenin and his clients, who come looking for their dreams in the shop. Dreams we discover to be circus materials that the students use to make circus numbers.
