Far and the rest of the family

19:05-19:40 Konstkollektivet room: Under Family always comes first. This family always comes second, at least when it comes to all of the improv competitions we have participated in. Anyways, that’s not important right now. Far and the rest of the family is a group of experienced improvisers doing short-form improv just the way you like your family get-togethers: a night full of weird people, dry cakes, cheap wine, and drier puns.

The serious duo - Between the lines

20:45-21:30 Konstkollektivet room: Under A home without books is like a body without a soul. The theater is our home. But where are the books? In this improvised duo performance, we see Agnes Edvall and Anton Romanus create meaning from the written word, when they move between the lines of literary works and out into an improvised reality. Between the lines explores subtext and brings together the precision of the written word with the exploration of improvisation.
