We have an exciting programme of 13 shows including five world premieres. The festival has 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, dance, musical theatre, opera, storytelling, and theatre.

Liverpool has a long history of developing or hosting improvised work – Ken Campbell, Improbable theatre, HOOF!, The Improvathon, Showstoppers, Austentatious and MC Hammersmith, the list goes on.
