Short+Sweet Theater Manila 2015 Tickets Available at All SM Ticketing Outlets

Wazzup Pilipinas!

We are proud to announce that we are an official media partner of the biggest festival of 10-minute plays in the Philippines - Short+Sweet Theater Manila 2015!

Last time we attended their press briefing held at the Samsung Hall of SM Aura, and we were so excited about the many possibilities for coverage that we expressed our support to be one of their media partners to help out in the information dissemination, as well as to proudly boats of the talents that will be competing in the event.

What make Short+Sweet Theater Manila 2015 more interesting is that they are offering  Master classes facilitated by local and international experts are also available. For only P 500, you'll get to listen to knowledgeable professionals that can help you become the next popular film maker. Now that would surely be a blast. To learn from experts in the film industry will definitely boost the morale of newbies and aspiring movie-makers, and lead them to a brighter future in the movie-making industry.

It is undoubtedly quite more challenging to create a 10 minute performance since you only have very little time to impress your audience with content that should be able to catch their attention but at the same time provide them with valuable entertainment.

September is just a few days away so we all encourage you to get tickets as soon as possible.

Tickets are available at all SM Tickets 60+ locations nationwide: SM Cinema outlets, SM Tickets Online, and SM Business Centers. They are also available at Lucky Chinatown Concierge and Eastwood Mall Concierge.
Tickets are priced as below:

VIP: PHP 1060

Don't you dare miss this.

Below is their official press release and the Master Classes Schedule and other details.

Official Press Release:

Manila will witness the second edition of Short+Sweet in September 2015 in collaboration with SM Aura. The month long Festival will be hosted at The Samsung Hall in SM Aura at BGC, Fort.

It will include 3 weeks of 10 ten-minute plays, 2 weeks of Wildcards, Master-Classes and a final week of the Grand Gala Finale.

Festival participants are made up of established, emerging and aspiring actors, writers, directors, singers, choreographers, composers and musicians.

The Philippines is a country with great potential and a lot of natural talent. S+S will be a wonderful springboard and we believe and hope to uncover a new generation of artists and performers.

Short + Sweet 2014 was a grand success as a debut consisting of 26 short plays, 26 directors and nearly a 100 actors. The festival was spread over a span of two weeks. Short + Sweet Manila 2014 was hosted in collaboration with the University of Philippines at the Wilfredo Ma. Guerrero Auditorium in the College of Arts & Letters within the UP Diliman Campus.

Short+Sweet is an Australian theatrical initiative that has grown into an international creative brand - presenting Theatre, Dance and Music Festivals, all made up of works that last just 10 minutes or less!

The Sydney program of S+S is the biggest short play festival in the world. Other cities to host annual festivals include: Mumbai, Melbourne, Singapore, Canberra, Kuala Lumpur, Newcastle, Chennai, New Delhi, Dubai, Bengaluru, Penang, Brisbane and of course, Manila!

Hollywood will be an addition very soon (2016) and will feature the best plays from around the world in 2017.  

Short + Sweet has three aims – Develop, Showcase & Create Excellence. In accordance to that, this year we are introducing a range of Master-classes being conducted by local and international experts.

Participation fee will be PHP 500 per Master-Class.

Shakespeare Master-class : Irreverent Reverence 
The masterclass will discuss the unfortunate reality that more than any other playwright, the execution of Shakespeare on stage or screen is least likely to result in any kind of agreement. Actors and artists find Shakespeare not only intimidating, but also frightening and even at times frustrating.

Acknowledging the contradictions, the master-class will use open discussion and text analysis/performance to explore limits and limitlessness in Shakespeare, why his work is so accommodating, and the effectiveness of being "irreverently reverent."

20th September 
Master-class by Aruna Viswadoss 
Movement in Drama 
The masterclass will discuss, and through a series of principles, activities, and exercises explore, physicality through movement; enhancing character with appropriate movement; align speech/sound with movement and with each other in an ensemble; cultural context as a shaping ground for movement choice.
