Short + Sweet Manila 2015

Manila will witness the second edition of Short+Sweet in September 2015 in collaboration with SM AURA. The month long Festival will be hosted at The Samsung Hall in SM Aura at BGC, Fort. 

It will include 3 weeks of 10 ten-minute plays, 2 weeks of Wildcards, Master-Classes and a final week of the Grand Gala Finale.

Festival participants are made up of established, emerging and aspiring actors, writers, directors, singers, choreographers, composers and musicians.

The Philippines is a country with great potential and a lot of natural talent. S+S will be a wonderful springboard and we believe and hope to uncover a new generation of artists and performers.

Short+Sweet 2014 was a grand success a debut consisting of 26 short plays, 26 directors and nearly a 100 actors. The festival was spread over a span of two weeks. S+S Manila 2014 was hosted in collaboration with the University of Philippines at the Wilfredo Ma. Guerrero Auditorium in College of Arts & Letters within UP Diliman Campus.

Short+Sweet is an Australian theatrical initiative that has grown into an international creative brand - presenting Theatre, Dance and Music Festivals, all made up of works that last just 10 minutes or less!

The Sydney program of S+S is the biggest short play festival in the world. Other cities to host annual festivals include: Mumbai, Melbourne, Singapore, Canberra, Kuala Lumpur, Newcastle, Chennai, New Delhi, Dubai, Bengaluru, Penang, Brisbane and of course, Manila! 

Hollywood will be an addition very soon and will feature the best plays from around the world.
