Here is some of what happened over the two days of WIG II in July 2019, as captured by Lewis Landini. The next event is on January 10th-12th, followed by WIG IV in Summer 2020.
With performers in attendance from Scotland and visiting artists from abroad, WIG (weekend of improvisation in Glasgow) aims to promote improvisation as a performance discipline. Supporting an inclusive and cross-disciplinary environment, each event has three basic elements: creative exchange between professional improvisers, public workshops and a performance evening.
The exchange provides a platform for invited improvisers to share approaches, skills and practices over the whole weekend. Through public workshops, ICEBERG and guest facilitators introduce participants, from various levels of experience, to principles of their improvisation practices. ICEBERG offer two observer places in each event, enabling PhD researchers, postgraduate students and long standing practitioners to be part of the process, offering an outside perspective. ICEBERG have received mentoring from international improviser Andrew Morrish through the creation and delivery of WIGs, and support from Creative Scotland and the Centre for Contemporary Arts Glasgow.
