Many people in our community have experienced financial losses in this crazy year. Our association is unfortunately also affected by this. Nevertheless we would like to support those who cannot afford to participate in the festival this year - and you can help us!

Würzburger Improtheaterfestival e.V.
Welcome to the website of the Würzburger Improtheaterfestival e.V.!
Our association is committed to the art form of improvised theatre in Würzburg.
Besides shows with international guests we offer workshops to improve in this form of theatre.
The core and annual highlight is our international festival in October. But also during the year various improv-projects take place, such as the MaestroTM, that offers not only the stage to guests and Würzburg players but also a exciting evening for the audience.
Your performance at the festival!
You'd like to not only paticipate in the festival but also perform? No problem! This year, we are introducing the show case classes. Under the professional guidance of either Nele Kießling or Gunter Lösel you will learn a new show format and perform it in front of an audience during the festival weekend. More info can be found here.
Workshop teachers 2020!
We are delighted to have six wonderful workshop teachers on board this year: Gunter Lösel, Regina Fabian, Nele Kießling, Sten Rudstrøm and Michael Bibo. The workshops can be viewed here shortly and registration will start on June 16th!
Corona Update: There will be a festival in 2020!
Until recently we had no idea how and if the festival would continue, but now we have made a decision: We are doing our best to make sure that the 19th Würzburger Improtheaterfestival can indeed take place! The new shortened festival period is from Wednesday, Oct. 21st to Sunday, Oct. 25th. Registration for the workshops starts on June 16th. There will be no lottery procedure, as this makes little sense this year. The places will simply be allocated after receiving the registration forms.
We are thrilled and looking forward!
Corona and the show application process
On March 30th we were supposed to start the show application process for the 19th Würzburger Improtheaterfestival. We were already looking forward to reading all the inspiring format ideas that reach us every year. Due to the Corona crisis, however, we decided to postpone the show application process. At this point none of us know what the rest of the year will look like, so it does not make sense to keep going like we originally intended. We will keep you posted on all festival developments.
Keep safe! Virtual hugs to everyone!
