It’s hard, fast and funny, it’s the Short+Sweet Festival

GETTING juicy reviews is the amazing Short+Sweet Festival - a 'tropfest' of theatre to taste and explore the best of emerging artists from south-east Queensland's cabaret performers.

Now in its seventh year, the festival is on again from July 9 to 18 at the Brisbane Powerhouse and from June 30 to July 8 at the Arts Centre Gold Coast.

A unique program of more than 60 performances and over 250 artists presenting theatre, cabaret, and comedy, participants work to gain coveted festival titles, including best overall production, actor, cabaret artist and audience's choice.

The full program is divided into seven strands made up of 5-10 works in a single line-up; each strand is attended by a panel of anonymous judges drawn from the local industry.

Festival director Nathan Sibthorpe says the wonderful thing about the festival is the opportunity it gives audiences to take a magical carpet ride through a variety of different acts - all in one night.

"It's hard, it's fast, it's funny, sad, punchy and offers a myriad of theatrical performers to 'strut their stuff'. In short - it's Short+Sweet."
