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", that time of the year when improv is praised, celebrated and raised to the skies!


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 in the center of beautiful and historical Uppsala. The participants, from India to the US and everywhere in between, has made #SWIMP a wonderful experience!
