Bremen is burning for improv! The number of improv teams rises, innovative shows and formats are being developed, Bremen teams are invited to renowned festivals and more and more people are making use of the broad range of classes and workshops Bremen offers.
The annual “Fliegende Funken – international festival for improvised theater” plays a large role in this. This year’s festival takes place from 4th to 8th September under the title-giving motto “FIRE.” The festival venue is the Lagerhaus – located directly in the so-called “Viertel”, the cultural and artistic heart of Bremen.
The preparations are in full swing, so that soon we can present the first worshops and instructors on this website. To be sure not to miss anything, like us on facebook.
The Fliegende Funken-Festival is built around a community of warm, intelligent, hilarious artists. Their collective passion to take risks and push the boundaries of what improv typically looks like was extraordinary. The organizers, staff and performers were all top-notch. Highly recommended!
Das Fliegende Funken Festival in Bremen ist eines der schönsten Improvisationstheaterfestivals, die ich besucht habe. Das Festival schafft die perfekte Mischung aus internationalen und nationalen Gästen und einer tollen Bindung zur lokalen Kultur- und Improtheaterszene. Dabei sind die Organisatoren und alle Teilnehmer sehr herzlich und zuvorkommend. Tolle Shows, abwechslungsreiche Workshops und eine perfekte Organisation.
This festival is one of the best we've ever been lucky enough to attend. The hosts and organizers are completely generous and kind--there's no shortage of hospitality from everyone running the fest. The spaces for performances and classrooms are very good and the city of Bremen is beautiful. From the other performers and teachers to the staff and students, it was an immensely pleasurable and enriching experience!
Wunderbar, bereichernd, augenöffnend und voller Suchtpotenzial!
