about #swimp

#SWIMP is a festival of improvised theatre.

As an improviser #SWIMP is an amazing opportunity to perform at the revered and beautiful Reginateatern, the oldest theatre in Uppsala. Go for fun and drinks after your show around the corner and go to bed at CityStay, just next door. In the morning attend one of the many workshops held just across the street from Reginateatern.

#SWIMP is your ultimate festival experience, it's that time of the year when the street of Trädgårdsgatan changes its name to "Improv Street".
 

As an audience member you get to watch all the amazing acts from all around the world, see the shows as they are created in front of you, right there and then.

You've never seen anything like it and never will ever again. It's something that has to be experienced to believe it!

 

Since the start in 2015 over 200 improvisers from many different countries have stood on the stage at Reginateatern. The participants, from India to the US and everywhere in between, has made #SWIMP a wonderful experience!

About Regina Theatre

 

Regina was designed by the famous architect Gunnar Leche in 1925 and was at the time considered one of the finest auditoriums in Sweden. In February 2005, after a complete renovation, the new Regina Theatre was opened and has since then established itself as one of the leading receiving houses in Sweden. 

Regina offers a carefully selected repertoire of entertainment chosen from the best of Uppsala’s culture life, excellent shows from the rest of Sweden and exciting performances from the whole world. In this uniquely intimate theatre we offer a rich mix of plays, musical shows, dance and stand-up in our 2 venues; the main theatre with 230 seats and the intimate cafe stage where our popular lunch performances take place.
