Our theatre improvisation league (LIFC) allows us create, train and guide improvisation teams for young french-speakers who are 14 to 18 years old. Through regular practices, improvisers from all over the province will sharpen their theatre skills all while practicing the French language.
The LIFC is back in full force this year! Do you want to play against others teams from all over British Columbia? Join the league! Fun and laughter are guaranteed!
The practice of improvisation is, without a doubt, one of the most stimulating activities for youths who want to put into practice their French oral skills. The LIFC allows its participants to develop confidence in themselves, to learn to adapt to unpredictable situations and to have extracurricular activities in French.
“Improvisation is a fantastic way to develop your linguistic abilities because you have to be spontaneous, funny but mostly, creative. Furthermore, this year our partnership with the Festival du Bois brings a connection to the wider community which is important because it allows the participants to live in French in a rich and immersive way”, explains Rémi Marien, the BC’s Conseil Jeunesse’s executive director.

The 2017 LIFC tournament
The 2017 edition of our provincial improvisation league’s tournament took place from Saturday March 4th to Sunday March 5th during the Festival du Bois in Coquitlam. You can find pictures of the event at the bottom of this page!
55 participants between the ages of 14 and 18, divided into teams from all across the province, came together to compete during our annual LIFC tournament. Between official tournament matches, matches just for fun and other activities in the evenings, the weekend really flew by!
The winning team for the 2017 LIFC tournament was….*drumroll*… The Tapioca Team (which was a mix of students from Cahiri High in Campbell River and l’école des Pionniers de Maillardville in Port Coquitlam)! Congratulations to the participants for their sense of humour and their unlimited creativity. A huge thanks to our volunteers, coaches and of course, to the many people who came out to applaud the participants!
Thank you to our partners !
