About the larp

One last night! We are inseparable, a tight circle of close friends. Together we are strong, always there for each other – but tomorrow, tomorrow it is over! One last night to say anything unsaid, to heal open wounds and reveal hidden things. One last night to celebrate, to remember, to say goodbye. I will never forget you. I will never forget us. I will keep some coffee warm for you.

A larp about friendship, memories and letting go. About things, we often take for granted, about a very important part of our all-day life. Together we design characters, friendships, problems, hopes, dreams, visions and memories. The tale is ours, but one thing is for sure: In the end, we will have to say goodbye. Originally named “Ich halt den Kaffee für dich warm” after lyrics by HipHop Band OK KID from Germany, the Larp is inspired by quotes from German pop music, for The Smoke it will get an international lyrics update.

Content Warnings: The larp deals with friendship and is a transparent co-creation. During the process critical subjects might occur [death of a family member, use of drugs, betrayal], but will not happen as a surprise but be talked about beforehand. Subjects that the players do not want to touch, will not take place.
