The Other Life Project at Grenselandet

The Other Life Project is an ongoing experimental art project, based on the premise that identities as well as the so called “reality” around us are changeable. The Other Life is a space where you can reflect upon and experiment with identities, interaction and being. Through a new identity, your Other Life, you can take control over or lose yourself in attempts to develop new understandings of what it is possible to be and do, individually or together with others.

At Grenselandet you have the change to be introduced to your Other Life and explore new identities together with the other participants. If you like it, it can be the start of your participation in one of the most innovative projects in the larp scene at the moment.

The Other Life event (DK) at Grenselandet is hosted by Peter Munthe-Kaas and Nina Runa Essendrop.

A zionist tale

Sanne Harder's father was born in 1923 in Germany. Since his father was both a socialist and a Jew, the family had to flee the country when her father was still just a boy. They went to Palestine - then a British mandate - and my father became intimately involved with the birth of the Jewish nation.

Son of Israel (DK) by Sanne Harder (dk. Søn af landet) is a scenario that narrates his life story. It follows my father's journey from victim to fighter, to - maybe? - perpetrator. Ultimately, the players are asked to be his judges.

Colonial ghosts

Memories are volatile. The same is life. Caught in Limbo a crowd of ghosts remember their last days in a country house in the last days of the colonies. Trapped in Limbo - you are forced to relive your last day alive. A great tragedy ended your short life, but your own inability to maintain who you are, leaves you trapped between the living and the dead. Ghosts (DK) by Troels Barkholt-Spangsbo & Martin Qvist is a black box larp where the participants are part of forming the story within a given framework. You are not alone. Others are locked up with you and their memories are just as fragmented as your - yet they are all connected. Together you will reconstruct how your earthly life was finished. One of you is the killer. Another traitor. This is your ghost.

Mood melange

Do you want to explore several different emotions in a single chamberlarp? In Your Hands (DK/SV/ES) by Åsa Nilsson, Simon James Pettitt and Lea Pullerits is your larp of choice.

Exploring the theme of "togetherness", the first act works with the emotions of isolation, rejection-attachement and acceptance. In the second act guilt- forgiveness and letting go. And in the thirs act the significance or meaningfulness.

In the three acts, the characters take on different fears and issues people face. The setting of the larp is abstract and mostly personal.

Danish love triologi volume II

It's Thursday morning. Once again, he forgot to set the alarm early enough. He's snoring. It's cutting through her ears like razorblades, but still she can't resist the temptation to touch his lips sorely. He slips a fart and turns his back to her. She gets up.

Lily and Peter are a couple. They've been for a month, a year or for a few days. They are everything a relationship should be - a prince and his princess. And, as we all know, every fairy tale has its challenges

Settled? (DK) by Anna Emilie Groth and Louise Amalie Juul Sønderskov Is the second larp in the Trilogy of Love (following up on Single?). It's about routines, relationships and everyday life. Settled? touches hetero normativity love and tenderness in a tragic-comic frame. The players will either be Lily or Peter, and through this couples relationship we will put the idea of the perfect love to the test. Prepare for diving into the norms of love in all its prejudices and directions towards true love.

Duty and dowry

Five years ago our worst fear came true. The commoners raised an army and faught back. Now our noble families, with the purest blood, made to rule, have been forced to give the power to the hands of the people.

Only a few families of the pure blood are left. But we have not forgotten our ways or values. It is more important than ever to strenghten the ties between our noble families. So we are gathered here today at the Fawley family's mansion to make a union between two of the ramaining families. The young couple was told this last night, and they better be gratefull. While we eat we will uphold the important tradition of the negotiations for the dowry.

Made for each other (NO) by Stine Haugen and Jeanita Hatlestrand is a larp about nobility, duty, honur and family. It is set in a fictonal time and place.

Space art

We are happy to announce that Ebba Petrén, Gabriel Widing and Tova Gerge from the Swedish art collective Nyxx are joining us to run their larp The Hospitality (SV).

The Hospitality is a spaceship leaving earth with a group of travelers that share and shape each others destiny together. It is a philosophic story with a touch of sci-fi that happens in a choreocracy – a society where decisions are made through collective movement in space. The choreocratic society decides to initiate a cosmic movement, a travel in space that might never end. Will the travelers ever return home, and who will they then be?

The Hospitality is not only a spaceship, but also a game in the space around gifts, loss and collective action. Instead of asking “what do I gain from this?” or “What’s in it for me?”, this game aims for a logic where questions like “What do I lose from this?” can be asked in a humoristic, collectivistic and empowering way. The space travel with The Hospitality explores collective choice and the love in making decisions together.
