Founded in 2011, JadaJada Improv is Finland’s longest running English-language improv team, and played a large role in sparking the rise in improv in Finland. This international ensemble of improvisers includes players from several of Tampere’s improv teams, and performs high-energy, free-spirited improvised comedy.
The iA Ensemble is a collection of spirited improvisers who are former or current students of The improvAcademy, the English language Improv Training Center in Tampere. The Ensemble has been playing together for one year, incorporating different techniques and styles into their performances.
I’MPRO is an improv theatre group from Valkeakoski! Their shows are all about being spontaneous, energetic, and fun! This is the first time the group will perform together in English!
Ökö Impro is a group of four young improvisers/actors from Hämeenlinna. While they may be young, they’ve been improvising together for five years, and have over 30 years of combined theatre experience.
Snorkkeli is the oldest improvisation theatre in Tampere, performing since 1999. Snorkkeli performs a versatile range of formats from improvised musicals to children’s shows. Snorkkeli is thrilled to be performing at FiiF2017 for the first time.
