trilogy of short pieces

Physical Puppet Theatre

ALIAS: 15 min, Nonna(s) don’t cry: 20 min, Le troisième Pas: 25 min. Recommended Age: All public (+6)

ShortStories is an interdisciplinary project at the crossroad of contemporary dance, physical theatre and puppetry. With an intuitive and body connected language , DÍRTZtheatre invites the spectator to dive into a poetic universe of metamorphose where our notion of reality is shaken in a subtile and unexpected way. Melting human body and artificial body , manipulator and the one manipulated, reality and fiction,  each of the three pieces reveals the inner universe of a character. With sensibility and emotion , ShortStories plays with thematics of the life such as the identity , the process of getting old and the interdependence within relationship. 

The pieces are combined as one evening show that take the audience on a travel through three different encounters.

The pieces can also be presented separately in theatre venues, street festivals or site specific venues.

ALIAS 15 minutes


ALIAS 15 minutes Sensitively and sensually laying himself bare, Alias unveils a man trying to free himself from his own shells and embarks on a journey to discover his "other" self, hidden well inside him. 

Nonna(s) don’t cry 20 minutes


Poetic tribute to the process of getting old and an invitation to broaden our different perceptions on generations. A solo that transforms quietly into a physical dialogue between two women of different age, between two generations, between the past, the presentand the future. 

Le troisième Pas 25 minutes


Solo, duo and trio at the same time, this piece reveals with humour and tenderness the notion of interdependence. Who carries who ? Who supports who within a relationship ?
