The Company members are experienced and dedicated improvisers who have been teaching and performing improvised theatre for up to 14 years. The company aims to develop both the artistic side of improv, experimenting with formats, styles, and story telling, as well as the entertaining side. SIT’s specialty is various kinds of long form improvs and every year the company plays around 90 shows on their own stage. The two longest running shows are Skala 1:1 (a genre based improv-jig saw) and Personakt (a ‘this is your life’ game). Other shows from the company’s records are Snut (criminal investigation improv), 1900 (historical improv), Soap operas, De La Crème (musical odyssey improv), Political improv (real politicians battling on stage) and The Swedish Improvised Eurovision Song Contest.
Since 1993 we have been participating in International theatre festivals in places such as Atlanta, USA, Berlin, Germany, Dortmund, Germany, Amsterdam, Netherlands, Helsinki, Finland, Tampere, Finland, Oslo, Norway, Copenhagen, Denmark, Seattle, USA, Ljubljana and Antwerp, Belgium. In 2002 we arranged Impromania – a festival for improvised theatre in Stockholm. Together with international guests we put up 43 shows in 17 days. We took part in the first "Theatre Sport World Championship" in Germany 2004.
The Company also has an extensive educational section with 750 students yearly. We arrange classes for various levels of skill and experience, and every Sunday some of these students participate in a Rookie-Sunday-performance.
Stockholm’s Improvisationsteater is often engaged by business organizations for entertainment or as creative consultants. A popular addition to any conference, our performance is often an icebreaker and can turn a dull conference into an exciting and memorable experience. Business needs humor and it needs art! Using humor and audience interaction as our tools we get you to explore your issues from a new angle. SIT has a reputation for being competent, skillful and can inspire people to rekindle their natural creativity. Our clientele is composed of a diverse collection of organizations and companies, including The Swedish Government, Capo, Creator Momentum, Esselte, Föreningssparbanken, IBM, ICA-Ahold, Kommunförbundet, Mentor, Radio Stockholm, Siemens Business Systems, SVT-UR, and The Department of Education.
