With amazing dexterity and delightful creativity, this dynamic duo transforms the ordinary into the extraordinary in performances for adults and children alike.

In Short Stories, we are introduced to a parade of memorable beings who, in their brief moments on the scene, play out the poetic moments of daily life.
Hugo Suarez was born in Lima, Peru and Ines Pasic is originally from Mostar, Bosnia-Herzegovina. Their paths crossed in Italy where Hugo was performing mime on the streets of Italy. Ines, a trained pianist from the Sarajevo Conservatory, began to study pantomime with Hugo and quickly discovered that her dexterity on the keyboard had provided her with tools that would be useful in mime as well as music. Together they founded Teatro Hugo & Ines in 1986 and premiered their first production, Return to Darkness in 1987. Hugo & Ines were seen regularly on episodes of the PBS series Between the Lions and on national television in Japan.
"This sums up the genius of Hugo & Ines...It's simple enough to make audiences giggle. It takes art to make them believe." -Chicago Sun-Times
