PERCHANCE TO DREAM!

What happens when the character from the performance Dreams and Obstacles  whirls around and around, only to find herself in the new performance Perchance to Dream


That spin-off leads to new images that question leaving one's own country, the life in art,
the possibility or impossibility of the choice, and the value of the dream.


Every day, on her way to her theatre, a young woman meets a man. Surrounded by his unpacked backpack and his instruments, a blanket  with exotic ornaments draped over his shoulders, he plays. They do not share their mother tongue, but they share different languages that transcend speech. She tells him, or imagines to tell him, the story of her life. He replies with his music. They try to find the sense of their life choices in a world where people are forced to abandon their countries in order to save themselves, in a world where sometimes, it is more important to follow the thread of Shakespearian dreaming.
