A theatre and circus comedy show based on the novel “The Ingenious Nobleman Sir Quixote of La Mancha”. The show tells the hilarious story of Pina who runs a family business – she is the owner of a second-hand bookshop. She lives in a world where books are unfashionable and no one buys them anymore. This somewhat lumpish but vigorous shopkeeper waits for customers who never come and while she does, she immerses herself in the stories of her stupendous books, letting herself be carried away by imagination and a longing for poesy. The eccentric bookseller interprets books using circus skills, magic and imagination which, as the show hots up, proves to be unrestricted by the logic of the real world.
