About the larp
A group of refugees wanders on an infinite plain, looking for the civilized world. They all have a different background but landed in the cargo hold of a truck together with other refugees, a truck that will take them over the border – on the way to a new, better future.
A larp for players who would like to experience an abstract play style. In easy steps, you will degrade from a “normal” character, to an abstract figure.
Content Warnings: physical contact, playing with silence.
Jantine van den Bosch, Marcel Oerlemans (NL): Jantine is a theatre maker and has written high impact shortlarps. By the use of theatre techniques and her own experience as an actress, she delivers games that will stay with you for a long time. Marcel is a longtime creator of larps and interactive dramas and is always looking for ways to improve and renew the artform. His interests are old-style fantasy-larp, abstract theatre, and everything in between.
|Communication style||Players will start as normal characters, being able to speak, and will end up as silent characters|
|Movement style||Since it is a larp that emphasizes physical movement, it is preferable if you are able to move around|
|Characters||Players play facets of a personality, or something else that is human but less than a full character|
|Narrative control||There is no story as such, it’s more like abstract activity|
|Transparency||Fully transparent – players will, or at least can, know absolutely everything in advance|
|Representation level||The fictional space is so abstract that its physical representation isn’t important|
|Play culture||The concept of rivalry or cooperation between players doesn’t really apply|
