Short+Sweet Theatre Canberra 2020

In 2009 the world's biggest little festival kicked off in the coolest little capital, which grew to become the largest community of performing artists in Canberra, with over 100 people contributing to each festival. The 2020 festival is going to be a celebration of that community.

As an open access festival, Short+Sweet Canberra brings together a broad range of artists. Professional performing artists work alongside talented enthusiasts, and artists with more experience and expertise in other artforms. And most importantly, it brings new audiences into the theatre as friends and family members of participants attend performances and recognise their own potential to participate.

Short+Sweet Canberra is at once local and eclectic. Plays are submitted from all over the world, and the festival director shortlists approximately half of the festival’s content from local writers, and half from interstate and overseas. Most actors and directors who participate come from Canberra, many travel from the capital region, and the festival has also welcomed actors and directors from Sydney and Melbourne.

Short+Sweet Canberra enjoys the support of Canberra Theatre Centre, without which, we couldn't stage this great festival each year.

The Short+Sweet family is committed to building a more creative world, 10 minutes at a time. The platform provides an accessible and enjoyable theatrical experience to individuals from all walks of life, and gives them the opportunity to connect with creatives from all over the world.
