Dirt [contained]

Theatre Company


Dirt [contained] Theatre Company makes provocative, socially conscious theatre with an absurd twist. Dirt [contained] was founded by Maria Swisher and Tana Sirois in 2010 in Liverpool, England.


Utilizing a truly experimental approach rooted in Grotwoski-inspired physical theatre, they focus primarily on original work, using a variety of theatrical languages to engage modern audiences. They strive to explore the complex and important issues of our time with humor and truth.


Past productions include The Last Eden, The Chairs, Easy Laughter, Garden Of Delights and Crushing Baby Animals.


Dirt [contained] strives for eloquence in absurdity, and authenticity in chaos. They believe in storytelling for a purpose.
