Seven years in and Dubai’s chapter of Short+Sweet has become the second largest showcase of 10 minute plays in the world, right after the event’s origin city, Sydney. This year promises the same creativity and experimentation as the years before it, scheduling seven jam-packed weeks of quick-witted and hard-hitting entertainment staple of the show.
Short+Sweet arrives with a new addition that celebrates Dubai’s multicultural social fabric: a non-English category featuring plays in Arabic, Hindi, Urdu, Malayalam, Bengali and French. From newbies to professionals, this experience draws over 200 of the city's actors, directors, writers and theatre groups to join forces on stage. They are encouraged to explore a universe of themes and genres, taking audiences through comedy and drama, romance and thrillers, in abbreviated 10-minute sets.
Catch a display of Dubai's incredible storytelling and performance skills at Alserkal Avenue's independent performance theatre, The Junction, every Friday with two shows on Saturdays. Glam up for the Red Carpet Gala on 9 March (AED150) or save your spot with discounted early bird tickets available until 10 January.
