Cambridge native Signe Taylor's first full length feature documentary, Circus Dreams, covers a year in the life of the aspiring performers and staff of Cirkus Smirkus, the only traveling all-youth circus in the world, during a year when the circus struggled for survival financially. The vibrant feature documentary immerses viewers into the lives of the 12 to 18 year old performers, capturing their intense work ethic, passion for performance, identity issues, deep friendships and budding loves. With a heartwarming story and great characters, the film is an inspiring testament to the power of youthful dreams.


Prior to the film several current members of Cirkus Smirkus will treat the audience to a live performance!
