Festival Story:

A festival of fresh, new, short dance works! Following the successful model of Short and Sweet—which has become in a few short years the biggest little play festival in the world—Short, Sweet & Dance is an opportunity for established and emerging choreographers & dancers to combine their creative talents and present new 10 minute dance works! Dance creators will unite throughout October at the Newtown Theatre, as they become involved with the newest, most exciting off-shoot of the hugely successful Short & Sweet Festival. S, S & D pays homage to its predecessor—Bodies Dance Festival which will reincarnate as a slick new model, revealing and celebrating the diversity of Australia’s artistic talent within the field of Dance. Executive Producer Mark Cleary, believes Short, Sweet & Dance provides choreographers with a launch pad to expose their work to industry professionals and a growing dance audience.
