About the festival


We live in an age when no-one has time.  


Average viewers spend between 3 and 7 minutes on an internet video. 


Advertisers get whole stories into 30 seconds.


Reduced Shakespeare squeezed the bard’s works into 70 minutes. 


Hamlet thought brevity the soul of wit and the Japanese that haiku was the highest form of art.


Can you join the masters and create a piece of theatre to bewitch an audience and make five minutes memorable?


Ten companies per night will battle it out with five minute pieces designed to entertain a sell-out live audience; an industry panel and online viewers at home.


Only ten companies can make it to the Grand Final where one will be crowned winner.


It’s the ultimate challenge, and if you try there’s a world of possibilities.


The deadline to submit entries is Sunday 30th September 2108.


Successful applicants will be notified on Sunday 7th October 2018.


Performances are between Monday 12th and Saturday 17th November 2018.
