If there was ever an event tailor-made for those with limited attention spans, it's Short + Sweet Festival. You know that feeling you get when you're 15 minutes into something that you're not all that into? Well, you won't find that here.
In the fest's 2018 Brisbane run over June 20–30, more than 40 new works will take to the stage across multiple strands of theatre and cabaret. Yes, that sounds like a lot, but there's a twist. Each and every different performance spans a maximum of 10 minutes.
There's no idea that probably hasn't featured among this heaving program of bite-sized theatre delights over the years, with south-east Queensland's best and brightest always eager to showcase their condensed skills. Of course, they're not just offering up a sample of their talents for the fun of it; they're also hoping you'll vote to send them through to the Short + Sweet gala final on September 1.
