You can still join us!

Grenselandet will be small this year - but you will not be alone in the black box! Come and join us! 

This year's festival will be special - with many fewer participants and larps than a normal year. But we still think it will be a memorable experience. We have had many cancellations, and we are now offering more tickets for those who still want to join. Most of the larps in the programme do still have spots. It's also very OK to join only because you want to join the evening programme - but you still need a ticket.

Some of the things we have to offer:

  • More than 10 amazing larps
  • A place to gather before and after the larps - with safe distancing in place
  • A small concert Friday night
  • Video link to a larper's retreat in Belarus
  • A special event for Saturday night

You may also buy a ticket at the door, but you make life easier for everybody if you buy it in advance. 

Buy your last-minute ticket here.

The Ark

Our latest addition to the programme is The Ark (NO) by Karete Jacobsen Meland and Martin Nielsen. It takes place on an Ark - not one that saves pairs of animals from extinctions, but one that takes the last single member of a species on a journey.
A group of different animals, all believed to be the last of their kind, are on a final journey. Lonesome, but with others who face the same destiny. How will they experience impending extinction? With sorrow? As an opportunity for change? Or as a chance to properly enjoy life because there is no tomorrow?
The Ark is a quiet, bittersweet, contemplative, and slightly surrealist experience, where we will use artificial smell as a way of directing the play. All players will portray different animals – with their own quirks and demeanors – travelling with the Ark to new and old corners of the world and of their lives and exploring being alone and together at the same time.

A World Apart

We are pleased to present the next larp from our challenge on Corona Resilient Larps: A World Apart (DK) by Nina Runa Essendrop.

All the people live in their own little worlds. 

They all have their meaningful routines, their possessions and their abstract task to fill out their lives. 

Each one is separate, unable to touch or talk to the people living next to them. 

But in their dreams, they reach out and gently become part of something shared, something deeper than their everyday life. And as their dreams start to influence their reality they learn to see and connect with others across the borders of their own little words.   


A World Apart is an abstract, physical larp about finding connection with others who are far away. 

It is a larp about the things we have in common even if our circumstances are different and the way we can influence each others actions and world views even when we cannot be physically in touch.

Die Lassie! Die!

The next larp from our dinner party challenge is "Die Lassie! Die!" (DK) - a film noir inspired larp by Julie Streit Pilegaard. This larp is not a dinner party in the traditional sense - but rather a group of mobsters around a table in a dirty back room of a London pub.

Nothing helps to hide violent crimes and murdered bodies in her dark narrow streets as 1946’s London.

In a small room behind a gritty pub, a gang of small time hardened mobsters meet to cool down and wipe off the blood after a botched robbery. Drinks are poured and conversation starts to flow, as they talk about their jobs, old times, and wait for their friend to return with words from The Boss.

Soon everything takes a deadly turn. 

All of them are soon to discover that nothing they know about themself and each other are as it seems.

Memories in Concrete

Today, we can announce the second larp from our challenge on making corona resilient larps: Memories in Concrete (UK/FR) by Michael Such and Nadja Lipsyc explores new ways of using technology to bridge larp and the real world.

Something bad happened and now you are in pieces. Trauma has scattered your memories and identity all over a concrete jungle. Can you make yourself whole again?

Together we will try, playing as pieces of the same person. One of you will be our Ego, mapping memories at a Grenselandet venue. The rest of you will be playing outdoors in Oslo or your own city. You will explore the urban space and recollect memories and emotions, in contact with other players over voice and video. Together, we will reconstruct our protagonist, their life and memories across the years. In the end you will have a collective decision to make via video call:

Who or what will be forgotten for good?

The experience lasts for two hours including briefing and debriefing. You will need a smartphone with roaming data, headphones, and to be dressed appropriately for walking outside.

NB! This larp might be possible to participate in even if you are not physically present at Grenselandet. More info will come regarding this.

First dinner party larp: The Discreet Charm of the Bourgeoisie

Before the summer, we presented a new innovation that we want to try out at Grenselandet this year: The-dinner-party challenge. We have a dedicated room where there will be a dinner table, chairs and some corona-convenient food and drinks available, and we invited larpmakers to pitch their ideas for larps that could be run in this scenography. Today, we are happy to present the first of these larps: The Discreet Charm of the Bourgeoisie (UK) by Mo Holkar.

A group of friends and lovers attempt to eat dinner together, but are repeatedly interrupted.

Can they retain their personalities and their faultless manners, in the face of a succession of increasingly surreal and disturbing disruptions?

Can the bourgeoisie preserve its discreet charm, as familiar world order crumbles into chaos?
