The Israel Festival commissioned this multi-actor outdoor show, which brings magic and mystery to the First Station. The show includes dance, circus acts, large puppets, and music, which are woven together create a beautiful, warped picture of a distant, touching fantastical world.


The show's name comes from the reminder to passengers to "mind the gap" between the train and platform. The distance between these realities is only one step, but it contains plenty of magic. We have dreamt about taking that step and entering a world of fantasy.
