A Brief History of VIIF, and a mandate, too
For over a decade, the Vancouver International Improv Festival has been bringing the world’s best improvisers to Vancouver for a week of shows and workshops in the name of bettering the improvisational theatre community, both here and internationally. From humble beginnings as a small tournament run by !nstant Theatre, the festival has grown away from competition and towards collaboration and heightening of the improv art form across Vancouver, Canada and the world.
