Bristol Jam is the only UK festival of improvised performance. And we are currently in the midst of it. Festival events started on October 26 and will continue until November 6, with everything curated by and taking place in the Bristol Old Vic.
According to the blurb, Bristol Jam has “a range of spontaneous performance from comedians, theatremakers and musicians from across the land and over the pond. This genre-defying, impulsive and entirely unpredictable festival returns bigger, better, louder and more chaotic than ever before.”
There are loads of things happening this weekend, including Lifegame, where a guest is interviewed on stage and their memories dramatised by actors; and Phil Kay in Tweed, “colourful interwoven strands of natural material slightly twisted for a rough warmth”.
