Fake news, a Royal Wedding, the Singapore budget and cryptocurrency may seem to have nothing in common, but improbable scenarios involving all the above can only come to life with the magic of improvisational theatre.

Diverse audience suggestions will spark the stories that will be told at the Singapore Improv Festival (SIF), returning 15–18 March 2018 at the Aliwal Arts Centre.

Now in its second edition, the Singapore Improv Festival presents completely unscripted and unmissable stories created with nothing but a little help from the audience and the performers’ own creativity.
One can expect unique tales of love, horror, adventure and science fiction and much more — made up completely on the spot.
