The GII Symposium 2021 will be co-hosted by Improbable theatre company and presented in collaboration with the University of California, Irvine’s annual Improv Revolution's Coup de Comedy Festival. It will continue and deepen the explorations begun at GII 2017 and 2019, with specific focus on the central theme of “Transform.”


This year's event is FREE to attend and will offer 3 full days of panels, workshops, and performances (June 3, 4, 6) with a global, 24-hour Devoted & Disgruntled (D&D) Open Space, facilitated by Improbable (starting on June 5), and providing opportunities for symposium attendees to explore the larger question: How is the world transforming improvisation? How can impro transform the world?
