Short+Sweet Cabaret Melbourne 2016

Short+Sweet Cabaret is a sparkling jewel to the Short+Sweet crown!

Merging theatre and music cabaret creates an atmosphere of exploration, energy, politics, stories, characters, burlesque, songs, and silliness. Short+Sweet Cabaret 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. We will provide a stage, lighting and sound, an onstage piano and limited radio mics, the rest is up to you to bring creativity and uniquity to the stage!

Just remember it can be only 10 minutes!
