The first time you see it
is the first time we see it.
Improv is live theatre without a script.
Actors create the plot, characters, and dialogue in the moment - it's completely spontaneous! With your suggestions as inspiration, each show will be totally unique, guaranteeing a show you've never seen before...
Following sold-out success in 2016, the Singapore Improv Festival is back - and this time, we're bringing international friends.
Featuring performances by no less than 40 teams, this year's festival showcases teams from Singapore, the Philippines, Hong Kong, China, South Korea and Germany.
Expect the best of the comedy and alternative theatre scene. Laugh with us. Cry. Come watch.
