Welcome to the world of Short+Sweet. A more creative world – ten-minutes at a time!
Presenting the 4th annual Abu Dhabi edition. The Short+Sweet festival started in Sydney 15 years ago. Since then it has spread across the globe and is now in nine countries and over 28 cities. Short+Sweet arrived in the UAE in 2013, and has blossomed ever since.
Each year Short+Sweet worldwide presents around 500 ten-minute plays, utilizing the talents of the best locally-based young and established directors, actors, and technical personnel.
Each festival has three aims:
To develop the artistry and craft of acting, directing, writing, and other forms of theater-making.
To showcase ten-minute performances and to create a platform for artists’ telling stories.
To create excellence – to stimulate and entertain audiences.
This year’s Abu Dhabi festival promises to be their best yet. The Top 12 plays encompass many genres, including Short + Sweet’s first all-Emirati production.
