This year is the 20th anniversary of the Winnipeg Improv Festival and so we’ve put together a festival that celebrates Winnipeg, Improv and the idea of celebration in general!
Celebrate Everthing – The Winnipeg Improv Festival partners with WinnLove, an organization who have an initiative for Winnipeg to celebrate diversity. We have gathered several speakers from different backgrounds to talk about what holidays they celebrate. The improv ensemble will then use these stories as launching off points to create scenes and explore the slices of life and humour that goes with it.
One Great Winnipeg – True stories from Winnipeg inspire the show improv show. After a successful run of shows during the Fringe Festival, the Improv Festival has remounted this show to again be inspired by our great city.
Picture This – The improvised slideshow show. An improv show inspired by the slideshow presentations of PechaKucha and more. Real slideshow presentations, fake slides, improv performers making things up. This show will be visually and intellectually entertaining.
20th Anniversary Improv Gala – 20 years of improv in one show! An improv show featuring a cast of improvisers and special guests. 20 years of hilarity jammed into one show.
Ghost Stories – An improv show inspired by the scariest true stories imaginable.
This show will scare you as much as it will make you laugh. You will scream. you will be terrified. You will laugh in the face of fear.
