- New in 2019 -
We are separating our improviser registration from our performance group applications. 
What's the difference?

Improviser Registration gives you your tickets to all 16 shows, access to jams, parties, and social events, discounts on workshops and accommodations, participation in mixer teams, and your festival T-shirt. Registration is 30€ and all individuals attending the festival must register in advance if they want all of the perks.

Registration will open 20 May.

If you want to apply to perform with your group, you will fill out an application. This application is free, and you may apply to perform with more than one group. The members of your group will still all need to fill out their individual registrations * and mixer team registration is first come first served, so don't wait too long to register.

Group applications will be open 13-28 May. 

* You do not need to pay the registration fee in order to be considered for a performance slot. You may apply with your group and wait to register until you hear back about your application.

BIG IF 6 invites you to make mistakes and love it.

How boring would it be if there were a perfect method to living life or performing improv? This year, The BIG IF embraces the inevitable slip ups that add spice to the human experience. Ignoring our mistakes and living in fear of them is stifling. When we acknowledge our gaffes, play with them, use them as springboards to grow and improve, relish in happy accidents, and love the joy of the unexpected, improv comes to life!

Join us for a festival of flow, surprise, wonder, and wackiness, of lessons learned and rules ignored.
