The second annual Finland International Improv Festival is back once again to serve up five days of improvised comedy and theatre to Tampereen Ylioppilasteatteri from 28 May to 1 June.

Bringing together teachers, performers and visitors from all around Europe and the US, some 70 international performers from Finland, Belgium, The Netherlands, Israel, Slovenia, Estonia, Latvia and the United States will descend on Tampere.

“Our mission is to bring laughter and great times for the Tampere and Finnish international community – and to anybody that’s interested in comedy, entertainment and good times in good company,” explains producer Senja Meriläinen. “We want to do our part in building understanding, co-operation and a sense of community between improv groups in Finland and all over the globe.”
