In 2009, The 14/48 Projects brought their quirky, innovative, fast-paced festival form to ACTLab (then called The Central Heating Lab). Since then, 14/48: The World’s Quickest Theater Festival (14/48: TWQTF) has kicked off each ACTLab season for close to a decade.

We cannot wait to continue connecting communities and artists across the world via this one-of-a-kind mash-up of theatre and sport.”
