This has never happened before! A dream about the neighborhood has suddenly taken control of him – and it’s preventing everyone else from having dreams, too!

Want to discover the dreams concealed between the neighborhood’s stones?  You’re invited to a short course on the secrets of dream tracking. The course leaders are world-class dream trackers: the imaginative Dr. Ilu Ke-Ilu and the illusory Prof. Yehoshua Ta’atua, both renowned in their field.

The dreamy landscape of Jerusalem’s Yemin Moshe is home to a lyrical show with the entire neighborhood as the stage, half real, half dream.  Actors Avi Cohen and Jack Shvili will sing, amuse and entertain. Together with the audience, they’ll touch the dream. They are the dream. You are the dream.

From the reviews

Dream Trackers is a wonderful street theater production for the whole family in the dream-filled alleyways of Jerusalem’s Yemin Moshe neighborhood.Mor Gavriel, Asimon, Israel’s Site for Women

Dear Train Theater and ‘Dream Trackers’ actors, on Saturday we attended your show with our daughters. Not only did the girls enjoy the event, but I must say that we parents also had an amazing experience. The two actors transported us into a delightful dream, and for a short while we became children again. Many thanks and well done!The Amiel family
