SHORT+SWEET CABARET: Submissions Now Open

Want to be part of the world’s most successful showcase event?!


The 2010 Short+Sweet Cabaret Festival is now welcoming submissions – and a new festival director!  

Emma Clair Ford, herself an experienced cabaret artist, creator and curator, is proud to be taking on the challenging role: “I’m thrilled to be onboard as Festival Director in 2010, and can’t wait to see what this year’s applicants have in store.”

Outgoing Festival Director David Read started Short+Sweet Cabaret with Short+Sweet founder Mark Cleary in 2008, and explains, “I’m proud of leaving the Festival in a safe pair of hands with Emma and look forward to experiencing the new level of excitement and creativity she will bring to the Festival.”

Short+Sweet Cabaret Festival is a unique performance experience for Melbourne artists.   Successful applicants are invited to perform a 10-minute cabaret piece  at Chapel Off Chapel in Prahran from Thursday 18 to Sunday 28 November 2010.  



With judges’ prizes and people’s choice awards, this is a wonderful opportunity to showcase new and innovative work in a supportive and inspiring environment, reach a wide and eclectic audience, and network and strengthen our remarkable cabaret community.




To enter a submission, simply email a 100 word or less description of your 10-minute cabaret concept to emma@shortandsweet.org together with your name, telephone number and a list of any props, technical and musical accompaniment requirements.

Great prizes can be won and costs such as venue hire, technicians, ticketing, marketing and publicity are covered.

Individuals or groups can apply.

But what kind of cabaret concept can you offer for the festival?   Emma says, “I encourage all forms of cabaret to apply and am particularly looking for fresh but well thought-out ideas.”
