The Garden of Habustan archiveIt is the night before Yoni is to be conscripted into the army. As he sits in his beautiful over grown garden, he notices that an old Palestinian man is watching him. This is Abu Deeb, and he has returned to claim his land. As they face each other the garden explodes into life with the memories of those who have lived there. Yoni, is visited by his eccentric ancestors all of whom died defending this home they built. Abu Deeb brings with him the many ghosts who have dreamt of returning to the land they planted but could never see grow. The determination they share for some peace in their lives draws them closer, but their love for the land may yet rip them apart. Live music, dynamic movement and quirky humour combine to bring these powerful and moving stories of humanity to life.
