international improvisation festival, 7th edition

14th-16th November 2013
Zagreb Student Center, &TD Theater

The 7th edition of the Improspections festival examines the place of improvisation in the specific artistic context around us; the forms of its existence or critique of our colleagues’ work; its frames and their modifications in the context of contemporary performing art and new intermedial practices; what is still relevant to use, affirm or problematize within the concept and practice of improvisation.
