It creates a fun and professional workplace with high levels of administrative and technical support. Its artists learn from each other, and from experienced theatre professionals.
SHOWCASE ten-minute performances. To create a platform for artists' telling stories. We provide the space for theatre practitioners to showcase their performance skills to new audiences and industry professionals. Our artists have a safe place to tell stories in their chosen field.
CREATE EXCELLENCE. To stimulate and entertain audiences with 10 minute works We believe short form theatre can move audiences as effectively as long form. All Short+Sweet seasons consist of high-quality 10 minute pieces. We achieve this through a vigorous, merit-based process, employing an open call for material, auditions, and artist interviews.
