Vision – A more creative world, ten minutes at a time.

The International Theatre Institute (ITI)-Zimbabwe will in February 2013 host the first ever Short + Sweet Theater Festival in Zimbabwe. 

Short + Sweet is open access and culturally inclusive, and with its ten minute format in all genres, seeks to return ownership of 
that vital story telling ability to the community.

The main aim of the festival is using Short + Sweet’s easily digestible and accessible short format to find, develop and retain new audiences for the theatre.

ITI-Zimbabwe in partnership with the Short + Sweet festivals, would like to invite interested, passionate and dynamic theater practitioners (writers ,actors, directors, stage ,props and costume designers) to submit their Resumes to be considered for an opportunity to participate during the Short + Sweet Festival 2013.

Only electronic submissions will be accepted.
A description, in one page or less, why you think you will be a good candidate to be considered for the 2013 Short + Sweet Festival. 

This information is vital to the Short + Sweet decision-making process.
