About

This festival will be a full weekend of musical improv comedy joy! We've gathered some amazing teachers to come to Edinburgh and teach you the skills you'll need to have the best possible time performing completely improvised musical comedy as part of short form, in your normal improv shows, or as a fully improvised musical. We will have a huge range of musical class topics, as well as classes about core improv skills (no singing required!). Each class will be limited to max 16 people so you will get plenty of time practicing in each class and lots of individual feedback from your teachers.

Most attendees will sign up for a weekend pass that includes at least 3 classes from Friday-Sunday, as well as shows and jams every night. You'll tell us which classes you want to do (via a ranked list of all the classes available), and the sooner you buy your ticket, the more likely it is you will get your top choices.

We want to make sure everyone has a pass that suits them, so we also have a few alternative passes available:

  • Single day passes- This is for people who can only attend one day of the festival and will include 6 hours of classes and just one night of jams and shows.

  • Shared passes- If you think you will struggle to do all of the activities across this weekend, but you still want to do some things on each day, you are very welcome to team up with another improviser and share a full weekend pass. This might be because you need more breaks to rest, or you might be travelling with your partner and child, and need to take turns with childcare. Our venue capacities are quite strict so we can't have both of you attending at any point, but as long as you can let us know who you're sharing with, and which one of you is likely to be at each event, you are very welcome to share a pass with another attendee.

  • Evening events and single classes- depending on how many of each pass we sell, there may be a VERY limited number of tickets available for individual classes/shows/jams across the weekend. We will announce details about this closer to the event. Please don't rely on these because they may not exist.

Scholarships

We are working on a funding application (and a few other avenues) to offer a limited number of diversity scholarships for this event. If we can offer them, the scholarships will most likely be awarded to participants who identify as non-white and/or disabled. We will release details of these scholarships as soon as we possibly can. We will also reserve two places in each class for scholarship winners so that their class choices will not be adversely affected by not registering the day that REMIX tickets go on sale. And finally, if you know you really want to come to this event and you buy a ticket, but it later turns out you would have been chosen for a scholarship place, then we will still give you the scholarship place and refund your ticket.

Every class, every show audience, every jam stage, and every post jam drinks venue will be wheelchair accessible

 

We will also do our absolute best to accommodate any other access needs participants may have. Please don't hesitate to contact us to discuss your needs before you buy a ticket.

Workshops

Workshops

Difficult decisions ahead! We have 20 different workshops for you to choose from across the weekend and they are all going to be INCREDIBLE. Each workshop is labelled with a level from beginner to advanced to help you choose which classes will be the most useful for you. Click through (on desktop) to see an expanded class description and any prerequisites.

REMIX 2024 Timetable - Sheet5.png

We're trusting participants to choose classes that match their skill set so that you get the most out of the weekend, and so your classmates feel supported in the scenes you do together, These are the level definitions we're using across the festival, but do click through to each class you're interested in to check the class description and pre requisites to make sure you have the best possible time in workshops.

Beginner- These classes are suitable for people who have never done the title topic before eg you might be experienced in musical improv scenework, but if you've never done a show with an overarching narrative before then Chris's Narrative Musical Improv course would be perfect for you.

Intermediate-Advanced- These classes won't spend very long on the basics so you ideally will have done the title topic on stage before and  it wasn't a trainwreck. Or, you might have done a workshop in the title topic before and be looking to go a bit deeper. E.g. If you've taken Will's Intro to freestyle rap before and you've practiced it with you team or on your own since then, you'll probably enjoy Freestyle Rap 201.

All Levels- These classes are suitable for everyone: newer improvisers will be introduced to the topic and more experienced improvisers will probably enjoy the more nuanced teaching points that come up. Everyone will have the opportunity to develop their skills in this area.

Returns, Refunds, Ts&Cs etc

Officially all tickets are non refundable and non transferrable, once you buy a ticket you are committing to attend.

That being said, we get it, plans change and stuff happens. Up until 1 week before the event, you can email us letting us know you can't make it and give us details of the person you have found who wants to take your place. Do not take any money from them until we have been in touch with both of you to confirm A) you have a place and B) they want that place. Facebook events for sold out festivals are full of scammers trying to take your money and we do not want anyone to get tricked. If you send money to someone who claims to have tickets before contacting us and they run away with it, we can't help you. We promise we will let you know if there are any extra tickets available, and we'll set up a waiting list if the event sells out.

We want to make sure this festival is an enjoyable weekend for everyone. We're aware that sometimes people in local improv communities make mistakes, and get asked to take some time out while they work on how they interact with other people. If this is something you've been asked to do, please assume that we feel the same way as your local safe spaces team, and would prefer you keep doing that work for now and don't buy a pass to our event this year. This is literally just me, Christine Simpson, organising this event. If I learn that you were creepy, abusive, or repeatedly disrespected people in your community, I reserve the right  to return your ticket and/or refuse you access to this event.

And finally, we aim to bring you the most exciting teachers we can every year at REMIX but hiring famous people can be a risky game. Firstly like anyone else they can fall ill or have personal emergencies that might prevent them coming, but they are also occasionally scooped up by once in a lifetime professional opportunities that we wouldn't want to ask them to turn down. All of the teachers are very excited about the festival and looking forward to spending the weekend with you, but if, for whatever reason one of them can't make it, we will still soldier on with the weekend as planned and do everything possible to make sure you have your dream musical weekend by offering alternate classes and/or bringing in substitute teachers. If you have any concerns about this, please get in touch with us before you buy a ticket to discuss.

T&Cs
Code of Conduct

Code of Conduct

Our code of conduct is adapted from the excellent one at Hoopla. We ask all of our students and teachers to follow these guidelines at all times:

  • Support each other, on stage and off stage.

  • Work together as a team.

  • Listen to your scene partner.

  • Collaborate with your scene partner, unless you feel it is unsafe or demeaning to do so.

  • Respect physical boundaries and don’t do anything physically dangerous to yourself or your scene partner.

  • Respect sexual boundaries, on and off stage.

  • Improvise from a place of fun, love, kindness and respect for your fellow improvisers and audience. A good rule of thumb is to find humour in things people CHOOSE rather than things they ARE.

  • Safety, trust and support is always more important than the temporary existence of an improv scene. So if in doubt, stop the scene, and you won’t be made to feel bad for doing so.

  • Difficult subject matter in scenes is to be treated with full emotional intelligence, and your teacher is there to help you with this.

  • Help us to create an environment free from harassment of any kind, on and off stage.

  • Show respect for your teachers and fellow performers by turning up on time and not using mobile phones during workshops or shows.
