STRUT DANCE is partnering with The Blue Room Theatre on their Short Works Program, 600 SECONDS:Moves for Summer Nights in 2024!

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.

Each program will present in the Theatre over a week during Summer Nights. Artists will be supported by The Blue Room Theatre and their program mentor to test out their idea in a lineup format set against the backdrop of a fun and exhilarating festival environment.

All applicants and pitches should demonstrate a consideration of the selection criteria: their creative vision and a desire to meaningfully engage with the mentorship offer and development opportunities of participating in the programs.


To apply, head to The Blue Room Theatre to download the application and info pack.

Applications close 5pm, Tuesday 17 October 2023.
