IMPRO Amsterdam Festival 2014Festivals / Amsterdam
28 January - 01 February, Various
Join the one and only international improvisation festival in the Netherlands, IMPRO Amsterdam, as they host actors and theatre troupes from around the world during their sure-to-be-hilarious 19th edition!
Improv-theatre is a popular, spontaneous theatrical form which relies on characters, plotlines and dialogue being created on the spot.
With no rehearsals and storylines developed with the assistance of the audience, each performance is sure to be original. This element of spontaneity is what allows for hilarious interjections and moments of comedic gold.
However, such performances require wit and cunning beyond that of a script.
That is why each year IMPRO Amsterdam invites the best improv actors from all over the world to showcase their talent and hone their craft through a full programme of shows, workshops and events highlighting the art of the extemporary.
› IMPRO Talks. Discussions hosted by Anja Boorsma with international improv experts.
› Workshops for both improv newbies and veterans to improve their ad-lib talents.
› Late Night Shows for improv diehards.
› A diverse Main Programme with shows from the featured international groups.
