PREMIER – this larp’s first appearance at a festival
About the larp
Two people, one important conversation. Both have rehearsed in their heads what they want to say. Neither of them knows what will actually happen. The Script is about how we see the world and what we can’t see.
It’s a character-driven, dramatic larp. Techniques include working with learning scripted material (but no performance) and exercises taken from improvisation and acting. The intention is to lead players into their characters, create meaningful play and give you tools you can use in other larps. The larp is focused around a single scene for two people, but uses four or more for the workshop process.
Content warnings: None.
Michael Such (UK): Michael is interested in many forms of amateur creativity including tabletop, larp, improv, playwriting and storytelling. He fell into the ‘Nordic’ larp wormhole a few years ago. He has helped out with The Smoke since its inception and won a Golden Cobra award with Hamish MacPherson in 2016.
|Communication style||Lots of speech|
|Characters||Characters are fully predesigned|
|Narrative control||The shape and direction of the story is entirely, or almost entirely, determined by player choice|
|Transparency||There are predesigned secrets that players will have from each other|
|Representation level||The fictional space is pretty similar to the play space|
|Play culture||Players are individually trying to achieve goals, such that not all can succeed|
