IMPROFEST RĪGA/CĒSIS

Trešo gadu pēc kārtas, oktobra noslēdzošajā nedēļā (26.okt.-30.okt.), notiks IMPROFESTRIGA. Pirmajā gadā tas bija īpašs ar to, ka pirmais, otrajā gadā tas īpašais bija neticamais fakts, ka festivāls turpina notikt, savukārt šī gada pārsteidzošākā lieta ir tā, ka IMPROFESTRIGA notiek Cēsīs. Jā, IMPROFESTRIGA izklausās pēc notikuma, kam vajadzētu notikt Rīgā nevis Cēsīs, bet šis ir improvizācijas teātra festivāls, tāpēc - kāpēc ne?
