This year’s “Improvaganza Closing Ceremony” will feature the annual Improvaganza Mash Up. The Mash will feature performers from this year’s improvaganza selected to be in groups at random. Each group will have 15 minutes to create a new show format and then 15 minutes to perform it.
Improvaganza! The Hawaii Festival of Improv is a gathering and celebration of Improvised theatre in all its diverse expressions. It is the Hawaii’s only international festival dedicated to Improv comedy and improvised theatre. Improvisers from all over the world come to Honolulu for a weekend of improv performances, workshops, and events. The festival strives to cultivate Hawaii’s local improv community by showcasing local and mainland and international improvisers while providing opportunities for them to network with each other. The festival also strives to raise the profile of this rare art form by introducing audiences to entertaining, stimulating and thought provoking performances, opportunities to participate in interactive activities, and a chance to learn improv through festival sponsored workshops
