ImproFest Vol. 2

14th to 17th of July 2022

On the 13-17 of July the 2 Danish collectives, The Community and SunShip present SHARE ImproFest for the second year.

Last time it was a blast of an impro party and our ambitions have only increased since.

We are eager to explore the possibilities to present free improvised music to a festive and new audience in a form and manner that will make them have a party they won’t forget without compromising the integrity of the music.

The participating musicians have rehearsals and concerts in new constellations each day and we strongly encourage each ensemble to think of how to present their music in the most inclusive way.

After the concerts each night there will be curated jam sessions inviting local musicians to join the fun.

The SHARE ImproFest is a part of Aarhus jazz festival and was quite successful audience-wise last year and we hope to attract even more people this year. The whole thing will be kicked off on Wednesday 13th with a concert of Horse Orchestra from Copenhagen who is a unique Scandinavian group playing the weirdest and most happening kind of jazz imaginable.

The participants will be a mix of local musicians, core collectives of the European SHARE project and invites from other collectives interested in the network of SHARE adding up to a group of 20 professional improvisers from 6 or more different countries.
