The third beta edition of the What IIIF? gathering is coming up in Gothenborg, Sweden!
From all niches of Europe and beyond a good handful of improvisers will gather 16-19 May 2019 to play, eat and bend their heads together around the maybe impossible question:
How to document and reflect on improvisation in a meaningful way when it comes to interdisciplinarity?
Read up on the participant invite here and join us if you can:

What IIIF ? London is beta 0.2 of the Interdisciplinary International Improvisation Festival. This research festival (the first was in Amsterdam in 2017) brings together researchers from around Europe to ask the absurd question, ‘How/Can improvisation be documented ?’
The festival moves within the London Improvisation scene and includes workshops, performances and reflection sessions. We use only one method of documentation for each iteration of the festival. For IIIF Amsterdam, it was video. For What IIIF ? LONDON, it’s writing. Writing it down, on paper, on a computer, on a board, on your hand, printing, printing pages somewhere, cursive, upside down, backwards.
Independent, artist-run and self-organized, nomadic and iterative, absent or present, it’s open to everyone who is interested.
