IF Improvisation Festival 2021

 —  —

IISCI (International Institute for Critical Studies in Improvisation)

Tune in to IF 2021: an all-day, all-night, online celebration of improvised art. It’s a testament to the resilience of artists during a distinctly challenging chapter in our communal history, and a celebration of the magic of spontaneous creation. It’s proof that, in life as in artistic expression, we are always finding a way out of no way.

This free, 24-hour festival will feature over 150 international performers of all disciplines—music, dance, theatre, poetry, visual arts, and more—showcasing new, improvised works. IF 2021 is put on by the International Institute for Critical Studies in Improvisation along with our wonderful array of sponsors from around the world.

/ A bit about my contribution to the festival / “How to Hold You Back Together” is an improvised poem built on kind, curious, and failed gestures of re-joining. Through spontaneous movements and words, Anita attempts to understand what it means to fall apart and where to go from there.
