Short+Sweet Cabaret Sydney

TWO GLORIOUS WEEKS – 40 + INSPIRING 10-MINUTE PRODUCTIONS

Short+Sweet Cabaret Sydney 2014 adds a sparkling jewel to the Short+Sweet crown. Short+Sweet Cabaret launches 50 + aritists from Sydney and beyond. 

Merging theatre and music cabaret creates an atmosphere of exploration, energy, politics, stories, characters, sex, songs, and silliness. Short+Sweet Cabaret 2014 is a forum where new ideas are tested, risks are taken, where the performers and audience share and intimate experience of something new, and never seen before.

Festival Director: Kate Gaul; Musical Director: Daryl Wallis; Lighting Designer: Tanya Gruber; Stage Manager: Elizabeth Rogers, ASM: Zara Thompson, Treisten Feildhouse: Programming Assistant: Diana Popovska
