IMPRO Amsterdam

January 25th – February 1st 2020
Compagnietheater, Kloveniersburgwal 50

The international festival IMPRO Amsterdam is ready to make you laugh! IMPRO Amsterdam brings the best of the improv world together in one animated festival.

Improvised theatre

Just like its name suggests, improvised theatre is all made up on the spot! Get immersed in unscripted theatre ranging from tear-jerking drama to hilarious comedy. Every night, at least six nationalities perform on three stages in four different shows. Besides the main performances, there is much more to experience, such as the daily late-night shows with new acting concepts, an open stage and a variety of workshops.


Every evening we have two amazing shows from Monday 27 January to Saturday 1 February 2020 starting at 20:00 and ending around 22:30.
Including an extra late night show of your choice from Monday to Friday.
Get your show tickets here!

Believe it or not, everything is improvised, making every night another big surprise! What happens on stage also depends on the audience. Help the actors by giving them exciting, impossible, or challenging suggestions to act out!
