Curated by puppet artists Julia Miller and Jessica Simon, Nasty Brutish & Short invites performers to create new work and risk sharing it with an audience for the first time. Puppet artists across all puppet forms present new shorts three times a year at Links Hall. All ticket sales are split among the performers.

DETAILS: After each cabaret, we want to make sure there is a reception of some kind (sometimes potluck, sometimes leftover goodies from our big fundraiser) so we can continue to build a strong community. We also divide the box office equally among the acts at each cabaret so everyone walks away with some dollars.
