Saturday 18. August 2018 @ 19:00 CESTFree
Every Saturday at 18:00 the ICC Theatre showcases the talents of its students and performers with this FREE show. Sometimes you’ll see shows by the ICC graduate students, sometime you’ll see experienced performers testing new show formats, sometimes you’ll see a ‘Whose Line is it, Anyway’-style show (short-form improv comedy). You never know what you’ll get, but it’s always guaranteed to be loads of fun! And that’s the joy of the Saturday Playground!
Remember to get yourself a FREE ticket in order to make sure you get in.
Each week the ICC Theatre features several different shows – most of them in English simply because our performers come from over 10 different countries and therefore there is a very international focus. Besides this, the ICC has its own Training Centre where Improv Comedy training is available to anyone – from the absolute beginner to the experienced actor. Over and above this, the ICC has a department dedicated to running events, workshops, team-building experiences and shows for businesses both within and outside of Denmark.

What exactly is improv comedy?
Improv is the skill of creating characters, scenes, and complete shows without ever having a script, rehearsal or even knowing what story is going to be told before the show starts. Improv comedy is doing all that with the aim of making your audience have a truly enjoyable night out. When performing as the member of an improv team, you are an actor, musician, director, member of the chorus, scriptwriter, straightman, clown, and prompter, all improvising the entire story line moment to moment. There are no props or set – just the improvisers and the audience’s imagination.
