About the larp

Curious Creatures from a black and white, two-dimensional world has come to our colorful, three-dimensional reality to experience it’s beauty. They are met by a small group of generous human participants, who are there to experience themselves and our world in all their beauty, through sensitive, playful interactions. The Human Participants will play versions of themselves and will be prepared for the experience through a short workshop.

IMPORTANT: Beautiful Being (Human Participants) will start at 1700 rather than the usual 1500. This is because the Beautiful Beings will be spending time getting themselves ready to be encountered. To fill those two hours, we will have various tabletop and board games that you can play, or you might like to explore London a bit, or just chat, etc.

Content Warnings: Being observed, others making abstract drawings of you.

Nina Runa Essendrop: I am a Danish artist and larp designer with a masters degree in Theater, Dance and Performance Studies. My larp designs are often abstract with a strong focus on movement, sensory experiences and the meaning of physical action.
