High Intensity Interval Theatre

The rule of this game: our five artists need to get their story told in just ten minutes. Can they Work. It. Out? Under the training of Writing Coach Andrew Sutherland, artists will be put through their paces and seasoned performers will be working a new muscle in this mixed bag of storytelling and text-based performance.  

HIIT Line-Up

About 600 SECONDS

After some time off, Boorloo’s favourite short works program, 600 SECONDS, will return to Summer Nights in 2023! This training ground for performance will put makers through their paces to create and present a 10-minute piece. There are three (training) programs to choose from: storytelling and theatre in HIIT, dance with MOVEMOVEMOVE, and experimental anything and everything in between late-night spots in AFTER HOURS. Take your pick or try all three.
