This year marks the fifteenth Winnipeg if... Improv Festival, which takes place September 30 to October 4 at the Gas Station Arts Centre. The event features members of Hip. Bang!, Rapid Fire Theatre, Der Kaktus, and The Kids in the Hall. Founder and improviser Stephen Sim will be featured in the line-up along with his infamous duo, CRUMBS.
CRUMBS are Stephen Sim and long-time compatriot Lee White. Together, they have performed across the globe with their unique brand of long-form character-based lo-fi improv.
Stephen joined me in the Llama House to discuss the evolution of the festival, the joys of collaboration, and international travel.
