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!

We may have some or all of these details already, but this is your chance to re-word how they appear in the program and in other publicity materials.

Please write a brief description of your required lighting states. You do not need to know specifics - it is often a good idea to describe the mood or effect you're trying to achieve, rather than describing what lights should be used.

Please list all major props you will be using.
Please briefly describe what happens on stage during your performance. In particular, please note any activity that may incur risks or special attention.
Is there anything else we should know about? For example, use of AV projection (only available in some venues), audience participation, likelihood of a big mess... etc.
