Short+Sweet Festival 2017

Presented by Short+Sweet QLD in partnership with Brisbane Powerhouse

A lot can happen in ten minutes… and we’re here to prove it.

Short+Sweet is kicking off 2017 in style with an exciting night of brand new home-grown independent performance. The dynamic duo who took home Best Overall Production in 2016 will be debuting their full-length version of Boys Taste Better With Nutella at our Opening Week Extravaganza, alongside a spectacular line-up of past favourite acts from Short+Sweet Queensland.

The following weeks will see Short+Sweet present more than 40 new performance works by local artists – each unique and packing a punch. Hold on tight as you are rocketed along a roller coaster ride of dramatic pursuits by seeing up to ten plays or six cabaret acts, each less than ten minutes long, then vote for your favourite to send them through to the Gala Finals. 

2017 Short+Sweet events are:

Boys Taste Better With Nutella: Opening Week Extravaganza
Short+Sweet Festival: Theatre + Cabaret
Short+Sweet: Gala Finals
