An all-night, online celebration of the arts!
IF 2020 is a 24-hour online event featuring 150+ unique, original performances by international artists of all disciplines. This free, all-night celebration of the arts will feature improvisational performance videos by musicians, spoken word poets, dancers, theatre practitioners and multi-disciplinary artists from 15+ countries captured in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.
The IF Festival is presented by The International Institute for Critical Studies in Improvisation (IICSI) at the University of Guelph in partnership with Canadian festivals including Hillside Festival (Guelph), Suoni Per Il Popolo (Montreal), and Coastal Jazz and Blues (Vancouver), as well as international presenters including Lasalle College of the Arts (Singapore), 17 Institute of Critical Studies (Mexico), and Onassis Cultural Centre (Greece).
This opportunity to gather online has been made possible through support from numerous community partners, including the University of Guelph’s COVID-19 Research Development & Catalyst Fund, U of G’s College of Arts, and long-time IICSI partner Musagetes.
