As previous years, Grenselandet will use different venues around Schous Quarter. Our programme is currently in the making, and we will release programme items throughout the spring, summer and autumn. We hope to see you there!

For our most loyal supporters who already know they will attend, we have released 50 early bird tickets that are sold at the previous year's price, 350 kr for adults and 250 kr for those 20 years or younger. Ordinary tickets will be slightly more expensive. Tickets are available here.

Welcome


Grenselandet starts today. Remember to meet up at Slurpen, Lakkegata 79 (Don't go directly to the larp venue). You need to be there 30 minutes before the start of your scenario, or risk losing your spot. You can find a map with the location of Slurpen and all other venues here.

Don't have a ticket? You can still come to slurpen and get a "standby ticket" on larps where there are free spots or where some players don't show up. A ticket for a single larp costs NOK 100.

Lovecraftian larping


Three lonely strangers arrive in a strange and creepy town of Innsmouth for some unclear reason and are invited for dinner to a local family. They will join the residents in discovering the creepy and horrifying story of the town and its traditions. What they don’t know is that they will find more than they bargain for... The larp is about meeting the unknown while most of the unknown resides inside the protagonists themselves, looking for truth and accepting one’s fate.

Dagon (RU) is a metaphysical horror scenario based on H. P. Lovecraft's work by Yuri Nekrasov and Maria Raczynska. It's a physical larp where the the horror will not only get inside through eyes or ears, but directly through the skin.

Arab winter


There's a tradition of larps that apply real-world situations into new settings. Palestinian larpwright Mohamad Rabah's contribution to this year's programme goes into this tradition, applying a theme from the Arab Spring to a fiction set in Europe.

Chaos situation (PA) by Mohamad Rabah is a game about fictional world in Austria, where young people are suffering from unemployment, and they want to raise their voice and come up with solutions. A group of them where very brave to go for a strike against the government, they were sleeping in the streets for a week, but nobody listen to them. The games is a close allegory to some of the events that occured during the so-called Arab spring.

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.
