ShortStories is an interdisciplinary project at the crossroad of contemporary dance, physical theatre and puppetry. Based on a physical and poetic vocabulary , 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. ShortStories reveals three different encounters between humans and artificial body. Each part of the trilogy questions out of a different angle themes such as identity , the process of getting old and interdependence. 

The pieces can be shown separately from each other or within a same venue. Indoor as well as street festival or site specific venues. 

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 ?
