About the larp
They travel to our three-dimensional world, where they get to inhabit three-dimensional bodies and immerse into the chaos of our complex reality. They observe the Beautiful Beings and record their experiences through abstract, two-dimensional, black and white drawings, in order to bring the beauty home and enrich their world.
Players get to observe, imitate and make abstract drawings of the beautiful qualities and beings they find in our reality. The larp is played with a small audience who get to interact with the creatures and observe the beauty of our world throught their drawings.
Content Warnings: Intense focus on movement and senses. Abstract drawing.
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.
|Physical contact||Moving in contact; e.g. rolling around on the floor together, contact improv, very close dancing|
|Romance and intimacy||Not relevant for the larp|
|Conflict and violence||Not relevant for this larp|
|Movement style||Abstract movement|
|Characters||Players play creatures from a 2 dimensional black and white world. In the fiction the creatures possess the players bodies for the duration of the larp.|
|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||What you see is what you get: the space and fixtures etc are exactly as they seem|
|Play culture||The concept of rivalry or cooperation between players doesn’t really apply|
