Vintage Improv is Improv focused on the talents, needs and interests of mature improvisers over the age of 50. While there are a small number of professional improvisers that fall in this category, the vast majority of Vintage Improvisers are people who have discovered their passion for Improv later in life.
VIF welcomes all Vintage Improvisers regardless of their level of experience There are opportunities for everyone to enjoy the festival.
TAKE WORKSHOPS WITH FELLOW VINTAGE IMPROVISERS
If you’ve always wanted to take a workshop specifically designed to highlight the gift of experience you bring to improvisation we have a series of workshops for you! Anyone can sign up for workshops. Some will require a minimum level of experience, Others are open to all levels of improvisers.
WATCH SHOWS FEATURING IMPROVISERS OVER 50
If you’ve always wanted to see shows that highlight the unique skills and performance qualities available to those of us over 50, we have some great shows for you!
PERFORM IN THE FESTIVAL AS A TEAM
And of course, if you have been yearning for an opportunity to perform with and establish community for other Vintage Improvisers in a Festival setting we invite you to submit an application for your team. Last year teams were selected from across the US as far away as Oklahoma City, Austin Texas, and Sarasota Florida!
ARE YOU A SOLO IMPROVISER? VIF WILL CURATE A TEAM FOR YOU!
Your whole team can’t make it to Boston? No problem! You haven’t been able to get a vintage team started in your community? No problem. VIF is pleased to offer to any experienced improviser the opportunity to submit as a solo improviser.
We did this last year with amazing success. As a solo applicant, your submission is evaluated to determine if our VIF team can offer you a spot in a carefully curated team. If selected, you will be assigned a director and your team will work together during the festival to ultimately perform as a team in the same shows the preexisting teams perform.
CAN I APPLY FOR BOTH TEAM AND SOLO IMPROVISER
Yes. Please submit your own separate solo application.
