IIIF stands for International Interdisciplinary Improvisation Festival
and the WhatIIIF? gatherings/meetings/festivals are dedicated to attempting to answer the absurd question:
Can improvisation be documented and reflected upon (and how should that be done)?
The website improvisation.wiki
is a constant working space and open library of improvisation aspects. It gets energized through the yearly meetings of WhatIIIF? and everyone is invited to contribute to it through these yearly gatherings, or at any other time, from their own improvisation practice and perspective.
Genetic Choir has been standing at the cradle of this festival and hosted the 2017 edition in Amsterdam
, after which being involved in generating two more editions in London (UK, 2018)
and in Gothenborg (SE, 2019)
We invite now all interested improvisers to join us from 21-24 May 2020 in Berlin
