Short & Sweet

Mohamed Hamad

Short&Sweet is an innovative dance event which gives 25 choreographers carte blanche to create whatever they want as long as it is under 3 minutes! A timekeeper is present for the event and any artist going over the allotted time frame has their music and lights immediately cut off.

The goal of Short&Sweet is to force choreographers to consider exactly what can be accomplished within the time constraint, and to really keep their movement ideas precise! Taking place in a relaxed cabaret/bar setting, Short&Sweet manages to keep the atmosphere light and gives the audience a chance to see dance outside of the traditional theatre venue context.
