Established in 1986, the Peruvian-based Teatro Hugo e Ines combines mime, dance, and puppetry in creative pieces that play out the poetic moments of daily life. Their Short Stories is a picturesque parade of colorful characters who, in the brief moments of its existence on the scene, try to catch those little poetic moments that are hidden in everyday life. These characters, with their dreams and frustrations, their successes and failures, tell us the eternal drama of human tragicomedy.
