Apply for 600 SECONDS
Applications for our Summer Nights short works program, 600 SECONDS, are now OPEN!

If you have the nugget of an idea that might not be a fully-fledged festival show, 600 SECONDS could be perfect for you. You will create and present a 10-minute performance piece and receive a small seed fund and support from a program mentor.

In 2023 there will be three 600 SECONDS programs, with 5 shorts in each program for a total of 15 works. Here’s a snapshot of the programs:

  • 600 SECONDS – HIIT (High Intensity Interval Theatre), for text-based works, mentored by Andrew Sutherland
  • 600 SECONDS – MOVEMOVEMOVE, for movement works, mentored by Janine Oxenham
  • *NEW* 600 SECONDS – AFTER HOURS, for more experimental/performance art works, mentored by Ash Baroque
For more information and to apply, view the Application Info Pack. Closes 5pm, Tuesday 1 November
