“This show blew my mind and broke my heart. I loved it. I had laughing tears through most of it.” -  BayAreaDanceWatch

Encouraged by a brash friend, a young, painfully shy American juggler finds himself penniless and alone on the streets of Europe. Flying Dreams is an epic ‘bromance,’ a time-traveling adventure story, an intimate, one-man, multi-character look into the world of the gypsy touring artist.

Aaron Jessup reimagines and reinvigorates circus theatre, combining hilarious and heartbreaking vignettes with high level physical skills. He draws from his life experience as a second-generation street performer, who went from shy San Francisco teenage juggler to performing in 12 countries on three continents and winning top honors at international busking competitions. This emotionally complex coming-of-age story received rave reviews from audiences and critics alike, and made sold out runs at fringe festivals throughout the U.S. and Canada.

“Enthralling…engaging…a hit-not-to-miss!” – Fresno Bee
