The Short Theatre Festival is above all a place for exchange and sharing between theatre and creation enthusiasts!

In order to frame this new concept, 7 rules have been drawn up to guide the participating companies in the Festival:

  1. Duration: 20 minutes maximum
  2. Actors: 5 maximum on stage
  3. Sets: 3 set pieces simultaneously
  4. Style: comedy, drama, cabaret, music hall, object theatre... no rules as long as the company gives its best!
  5. Format: plays, extracts from plays, models... each company is free to propose the format that suits them best.
  6. Indoor or outdoor: the plays must be able to be presented in any setting.
  7. Philosophy: good humour and a sense of sharing will be the key words for the troupes, the organisers and the public!

Little extras?

  • You might meet some rising stars
  • Stages in the enchanting setting of the lake of Carcans-Hourtin
  • It's totally free! For the troupes and for the spectators!
