Short+Sweet Dance Sydney is a platform for emerging and professional choreographers to develop and showcase their work in a supportive environment, where their only concern is their individual creative process. The festival brings choreographers from a wide range of genres and experiences together to share and exchange ideas. Emerging choreographers have the opportunity to learn from industry professionals and acclaimed choreographers are reenergized by the raw passion of our next generation of movement makers.
The 2014 festival features four companies of works, with each performing over two nights during the festival season - you can see the full list of works using the tabs at the bottom of the page. 2014 also boasts over 40 new works being performed by over 170 performers!
