Improvised Theatre from all over the World

On the Stages of Würzburg

About 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.


Apply with your own show format!

It's probably already too cold for a show in the forest in October, but surely you have other exciting suggestions, which shows we should present at this year's festival on the stages of Würzburg. We are looking forward to your ideas! Until June 29th you can apply (as a group or individually) with one or more formats for the Würzburger Improtheaterfestival. The application form and more information about the conditions can be found here.

The Corona pandemic has disarrayed a lot of things - including our festival. That's why we strike a new path for this year and are moving our festival to the summer. From July 9th to 11th the Würzburger Improtheaterfestival will take place - for the first time in a Flip-Flop-Edition! The organization is still under construction, but information will follow soon!
