Submissions Wellington 2016

Short+Sweet Wellington is on for 2016!

The annual big-little Festival of 10-minute performances is now taking submissions for its 2nd season in Wellington.

After a successful debut, Short+Sweet is returning to Wellington for its second season in 2016. Once again, we’ll be teaming up with BATS Theatre for a week-long season of 10-minute Theatre performances from 19 – 22 October.

Short+Sweet acts as a platform for emerging and established creatives to develop and perform new and original work in a professional arts environment. The Festival brings together a melting pot of professional, emerging and recreational artists in one place and this year the Festival is looking forward to uncovering Wellington’s creative gems across short-format theatre, musical theatre and cabaret.

Save the date! Short+Sweet Festival Wellington @ BATS Theatre

As part of our mission to support new and developing creatives the Festival provides a risk free environment to test and present works never before performed in Auckland with the following:

  • Venue
  • Technical crew
  • Production meetings and pack in slot
  • Audition opportunities
  • Support from Artistic Curators and Festival team
  • Industry experts and audiences to view your work and provide feedback
  • Marketing the Festival to the city through web, social media and print
  • Ticketing through TAPAC’s Patronbase

We want to hear from you – if you have a story, idea or work in development that you are eager to bring to the stage, let us know!
