Short+Sweet Theater Manila 2016: The Biggest Little Play Festival In The World

Wazzup Pilipinas!

Short+Sweet Theater is a festival of ten minute plays and theatre pieces. They are the most far-reaching brand of short form theatre in the world. Each year they showcase hundreds of bite-sized dramatic treats.

They handpicked over 400 ten minute plays, selected from thousands of scripts submitted, and present them in their Festivals. They utilise the talents of established and upcoming actors, directors, writers, and technical crew, to create some of the best short work theatre across the planet.

Beginning as a small festival of 10 minute plays in Sydney, Australia, they have grown into a global organisation. Short+Sweet has made a huge impact on the Australian theatre scene through developing new, original work with emerging artists and providing a platform for established artists to showcase their talents.

Their vision is simple – a more creative world 10 minutes at a time!

Short+Sweet has three aims  

• DEVELOP the artistry and craft of acting, directing, writing, dancing, choreography, singing and many other forms of theatre-making.

We create a fun and professional workplace with high levels of administrative and technical support. Our artists learn from each other, and from experienced theatre professionals. We facilitate a supportive environment for theatre practitioners to network and to find support for their future.

• 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.
