A better self


What is the perfect version of you? Is it possible to change? Were you shaped by your experiences or have you always been this way? There are so many hard questions. What if we told you there exists a process that provides you with the answers?

In Pieces of you, Pieces of me (NO/SV/IT/US)we present you with the option to recieve the upgrade. A new you. It's a meditation and a ritual. And it could be a larp. Playing a role is optional.

Pieces of you, Pieces of me was created by Magnar Grønvik Müller, Carl Nordblom, Cecilia Dolk, Pierpaolo Vittoria and Maury Brown as their exam piece at Stockholm Dramatiska Högskola. At Grenselandet, it will be directed by Magnar Grønvik Müller, Carl Nordblom and Veslemøy Waage.

War Stories


In two or three weeks there won't be anything left of your old self, only your name. You are not yourself, you're a different person. And this person is not scared of a dead body, but calmly or even discontentedly thinks that it has to be dragged in the heat for several miles. ...He is familiar with his or somebody else's excitement when seeing the dead: It's not me! And this transformation happens ...almost to everyone out there. - Zinky Boys by Svetlana Aleksievich

War stories (BY) by Nastassia Sintisina is a larp about a group of young men who found themselves in the war and about struggles they are facing such as witnessing death, fear, homesickness and repression of oneself. This larp was inspired by a number of literary works and films about real-world military conflicts, but it doesn't tell a story of any of them.

Magic ocean


Once upon a time on an island surrounded by a big blue ocean there was a fishermen village. When hard times hit the village, the inhabitants worked together to call the goldfish from the deep to wish the threat away. But the temptation to choose yourself and making your deepest desire come true will be a challenge for your faith and loyalty to the people who need you most. Will you sacrifice your dreams for the village or the village be sacrificed for your dreams?

The Sea of Wishes (NO/DK/BY) by Jorid Jønland, Elena Rabkina and Frederikke B. Høyer is a larp that use the rules of the fairytale to create a story about the conflict between community and individual." The process iterates, changing the society along with the characters as more and more sacrifices are needed.

Lost friendship


2006 (BY) by Alexander Karalevich is a larp about lost friendship, about people who were tightly connected by a common activity, who faced everything together, but gradually started losing the feeling of unity. The larp brings up the following questions: what part of our past should we leave with us and is it possible to hold the time?

When the time didn’t exist, they were best friends. They shared the best and the worst in their lives, the first discoveries and the following disappointments, the first feats and the last betrayals. Then they started feeling time, they found aims and changes. And, subtly, they started drifting apart. For some more time they kept seeing each other, then they started making appointments, then they didn’t pick up the phone, then they realized that everything they had together is gone. But is it? Maybe, if they meet again and have this hear-to-hear talk, they will go back to 2006 where the time and the world didn’t exist and there wasn’t career, children, emigration and death?

-Hi! -Hello! -How are you? -You see… -Yeah… -Yeah… -OK, see you, then! -Yes, see you! -Let’s get in touch some time! -Sure!

Nightly dreams


When we sleep, our unconscious mind, the Dream Messengers, build dreams for us to try to send us important messages through the night. Sometimes it works, most times it doesn't, because they have to hurry up before we wake.

The Night Café (DK) is a short version of the larp Before We Wake. It is a surreal, personal larp, where you can explore your dreams.

The Night Café is created by Kristoffer Thurøe and Jesper Heebøll (based on Before We Wake by Heebøll, Essendrop, Harder, Fich, Kromann and Schønnemann Andreasen). It will be directed by Kristoffer Thurøe.
