The brisk festival is an international theater Festival that features short plays up to 10 min long. What makes live theater so special is the human interaction, both between the players on stage and between actors and audience. The brisk festival multiply that raw and creative energy, with different ensembles, directors and writers exchanging ideas, learning from each other and training inspiration. The short stories allow audiences to experience in a very limited amount of time a wide range of emotions and feelings, making them think and talk about different subjects and situations brought by the more than 250 talented participants.

The festival has 8 programs of 6-7 plays each, 52 short plays in total, that will be competing during 4 weeks, out of 350 submissions received. 34 plays are in English and 20 in Spanish. And although most of them are produced by LA local companies, there will be also artists coming from Mexico, Florida, and Australia in this first edition.
The best plays, chosen by a professional Jury (casting directors, producers, directors, actors, writers, managers and agents) and by a popular jury (the audience), will be competing in the Finals’ weekend during the 5th week of the festival, August 10th and 11th. The best play in English and the best play in Spanish will receive an award of $500.

This new international theater festival features short plays up to 10 min long performed in Spanish and English. It's a wonderful tool for writers, directors and actors who want to share their voice and talent in a professional environment and venue, offering a powerful tool for diversity and plurality in the entertainment industry, as well as providing a way to discover new or established local talent by engaging more people in the live theater experience at a very reasonable cost, much the same as the recent Hollywood Fringe Festival. Quality varies from scene to scene, with much difficulty understanding several actors who speak with heavy accents,  but enthusiasm for performing is universal.
