Liverpool Improvisation Festival

Liverpool’s first ever festival of improvisation takes place April 21-22 at Unity Theatre, 1 Hope Place.

Across two days will be 12 shows including two world premières and four workshops. There is a mix of established artists and companies and those who are new and emerging. All the work is improvised and draws upon numerous art forms including clown, comedy, fooling, music, puppetry, storytelling and theatre.

Liverpool has a long history of developing or hosting improvised work: Ken Campbell, Improbable theatre, HOOF!, The Improvathon—the list goes on.
