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.
