This weekend, a plan to attend the 2015 Alaska State Improv Festival, known in shorthand as AS IF, is a plan for spontaneity. Seventeen improvisational theater groups from around the country are coming to Juneau for the festival. One will impersonate Franz Kafka. One will narrate history, drunk. One, from Sitka, will potentially pull you up onstage.
“We try to get a range of performers to expose both improvisers and audiences to what improv can be,” said Eric Caldwell, festival organizer and co-producer of Juneau-based improv group Morally Improverished.
