What is The Dramatic Improv Festival?

The Dramatic Improv Festival (DIF) is a new festival, dedicated to bringing the best of dramatic and narrative improvisation into one location, for a long weekend of connection, education, and performance.

The festival will be held in the North Center neighborhood of Chicago on October 4-6, with classes running on Saturday and Sunday and performances Friday, Saturday, and Sunday nights.

This is the first of its kind, an entire festival dedicated to bringing together the best dramatic improvisors in the world to cross-pollinate, perform, learn, and network. There will be numerous performances, three festival venues, and workshops galore.

We’ll have instant-team opportunities and jams as well, so even if you’re on a performing ensemble, you still have a chance to get onstage and join the festivities. The after-parties and jams will all be at LOL Theater.

There are also scholarship slots available for students in need.
