  • Faces, Masks – this is not part of The Smoke, but an associated event that we are supporting.
    It’s a new interactive performance work about the performances we enact in our everyday lives.Devised over the course of two days, this is a never-before-seen and never-to-be-seen again piece of interactive theatre. Explore, watch and play with face making or mask faking. (No actual masks will be used in the performance.)
    Drawing from the worlds of theatre and live action roleplay (larp), this piece will be devised by a team of artists/performers/designers led by Nina Runa Essendrop. We will create a world for you, the audience, to delve into and play within. No experience of larp or larping is needed. Come to watch, listen, explore or play. All varieties of participation are welcome.

Mornings

It’s important to note, if you’re not familiar with London, that it can take a long time to travel around the city. If you’re not staying close to Broadgate, then you’ll need to make sure you allow enough travel time to be with us in good time for starting at 1100 in the mornings. We won’t be able to delay gamestarts.

Larp slots

Here’s a handy rough graphic of which larps are in which slot, in which room:
