What a great weekend in London with our friends in London Improvisers Orchestra!
Rehearsal at the Oto Project Space on Saturday and concert at I K L E C T I K on Sunday. Invigorating for everyone involved!

For 23 years the London Improvisers Orchestra has been dedicated to free, devised and conducted large-group improvisation. It draws on a large and shifting pool of improvising musicians from London and beyond.

In january 2020 we invited Steve Beresford and Caroline Kraabel from LIO to share some of their vast experience from over 20 years running the group and play with BIS at Bergen Kjøtt. One year later we finally had the pleasure of traveling to London and perfrom with them at Iklectik.

Representing Bergen ImproStorband:
Eline Rafteseth / Guro Kverndokk / Jonas Hamre / Bjørn Ognøy / Espen Lund / Thore Warland / Kristoffer Riis / John Hegre /Ole Andre Farstad
