The international festival IMPRO Amsterdam is ready to make you laugh! IMPRO Amsterdam brings the best of the improv world together in one animated festival.
Just like its name suggests, improvised theatre is all made up on the spot! Get immersed in unscripted theatre ranging from tear-jerking drama to hilarious comedy. Every night, at least six nationalities perform on three stages in four different shows. Besides the main performances, there is much more to experience, such as the daily late-night show with new acting concepts, an open stage and free IMPRO talks.
Believe it or not, everything is improvised, making every night another big surprise! What happens on stage also depends on the audience. Help the actors by giving them exciting, impossible, or challenging suggestions to act out!
Improvisational theatre is a lot of fun to watch, but it’s even more fun to have a go yourself. A great variety of workshops are on offer during the festival, all taught by international actors.
There are workshops for all levels, from novices to the more advanced, on subjects such as duo-impro, physical comedy or being a daredevil on stage.
