The biggest international impro event in Strasbourg

In 2019 will take place in Strasbourg our first international festival in the English language! Rich from all the amazing experiences we had abroad, we are bringing back all that in France for a great experience with more than 20 shows, a lot of amazing workshops, and improvisers from all over the world to live the French adventure! It will be a blast, Sacrebleu!

An international team

Everything started 10 years ago, when we all met through improv. Back then, we didn’t know we would go all around the world to teach and perform, that we would meet such amazing people and that we would become a family.

We created la Carpe Haute six years ago to have our own professional company to organize shows, gigs, workshops and work together on new formats and news ways of improvising. A short time later, we began to improvise in English, travelling the European festivals and quickly the entire world. Today, the international team performed and/or taught in more than 20 festivals and visit a bunch of countries, best known for its crazy and playful free form show “Just Play”. The international team is mainly composed by Cédric Marschal, Gael Perry, Dan Seyfried and Pauline Vernier, but is also completed sometimes by other members of the company.

This event is powered and produced by our company la Carpe Haute, well known in Strasbourg for its shows, its improv school and around the world for his main travelling freeform show Just Play.
All our regular shows will take place at the venue Espace K (10 rue du Hohwald), in Strasbourg. Thanks to them, we can plan 5 days in a row of shows and amazing times.
For our big opening night, we will have the pleasure to perform and party at the Domaine Achillée, in Scherwiller. Big up for them and the awesome organic wine the make.
Our first weekend of intensive workshops will take place the weekend just before the Opening Night of the festival (23rd-24th of March). To rest as needed, the participant will stay at our partner’s location: the Graffalgar!

The festival wouldn’t be a success without all the volunteers working before and during Sacrebleu! to offer you the best time!
