About the concept

WHAT IIIF? is an ongoing collective, interdisciplinary and international research festival dedicated to answering the absurd question: Can improvisation be documented?

This year, WORM is hosting their 6th festival during which they will tackle the problem of SPACE in improvisation in impromptu labs, discussions, performances, shared observations, dance, music, painting, drawing, and lunch.  WHAT IIIF? ‘documents’ improvisation practices on an interdisciplinary level to feed the open source website.

Audience is welcomed to ‘have a peak,’  and see what the improvisers (not only musicians, also dancers & performers) are doing. Their improvisational process will be open to the public, and you are welcome to come, see & hear! 

‘Makers festival’ tooks place 04.10.2023 at WORM.
