Pro­pos­als sought for 10-minute art shows

Auckland City Harbour News - - NEWS -

If you think you can dance, sing, act, write or di­rect your way into an au­di­ence’s hearts in 600 se­conds then add your name to the list of hope­fuls in the Short + Sweet Auck­land Fes­ti­val line up.

Reg­is­tra­tions are now open for in­di­vid­u­als or groups who have ideas for mu­si­cal, the­atre and dance pieces of all gen­res that are no more than 10 min­utes long.

It is the most fast and fu­ri­ous of arts fes­ti­vals. More than 50 per­for­mances, all 10 min­utes long, take place over a pe­riod of weeks in May and June cul­mi­nat­ing in a gala fi­nale where the best of the fes­ti­val will be cel­e­brated.

Short + Sweet be­gan as an Aus­tralian the­atre fes­ti­val but the con­cept has been broad­ened to al­low dancers and singers to show­case their work too. The idea has spread in­ter­na­tion­ally.

Pro­pos­als can have a cast and cre­atives al­ready at­tached or or­gan­is­ers can help find them.

Reg­is­tra­tions close on April 12 for dance, song and di­rec­tor en­tries and May 3 for ac­tors.
