Festival tickets sold out


We have now sold out the festival tickets for Grenselandet 2019. But there are still some options to join.

If you don't have a ticket, you can still meet up at the venue and fill vacant spots at the larps. We cannot guarantee you a spot if you do this, but speaking from experience, there are usually spots, at least at some of the larps. It costs 100 kr for a last-minute ticket for a larp. The Grenselandet party is for ticket holdes only. If you want to come to the party but don't have a ticket (either festival pass or last minute ticket to at least one larp), you also have to buy a 100 kr last-minute ticket to join the party.

The Grenselandet 2019 Design Challenge



Since the beginning, Grenselandet has been a festival celebrating excellent larps from all over world. It has been a requirement that the larp has been tested, and the programme has been curated based on tetamonies given by players, designers and festival organizers.

This year, we are rerunning a few of the most celebrated larps from the past decade, but we are also introducing something new: The Grenselandet Challenge. This is both an homage to the very beginning of Grenselandet, when the festival started out as the testing ground for "The Larpwriter Challenge" in 2010, as well as a way to inspire renewal.

We have teamed up with Deichmanske Library to make a challenge to larp makers from all over the world. The challenge is to create a larp that is playable in a semi-public space.

The playing area is as follows:


- A small ~20 sqm black box within the library space
- Light rig is available and sound can be used with low volume
- The library will be open to the public as the larps run, and library visitors will be present outside the scene
- The scene can be completely covered by the black box curtains but they can also be partly og completly open to create interaction with the outside
- Maximum duration 4 hours including workshop
- No preparations required for the players before they meet up To sign up for the challenge, go here

BUY YOUR TICKET HERE

We have four different kinds of tickets.

Ordinary ticket is available at NOK 400

Sponsor ticket is available at NOK 600. If you buy one of these, we will make one more ticket available at subsidized price, allowing more people who are less well off to attend.

Subsidized ticket is available at NOK 200. The price is reduced thanks to those who pay extra for a sponsor ticket. The subsidized tickets are intended for people with low income. There are no formal criteria, we trust that the people who buy these tickets are those who need them. If you think that NOK 200 makes a difference for you, ou can buy a subsidized ticket.

Activist ticket is available at NOK 50. This means that you would like to help us running Grenselandet. Free meals are included in the ticket. You will have to work two shifts of approximately 5 hours. This means you will only be able to play one or two larps. But you will get a lot of cred and love!

The Monica Lewinsky Effect

"The Monica Lewinsky Effect" (BY), by Tatsiana Smaliak and Ivan Pranovitch, is a non-verbal larp about group aggression and reprobation on social media. 

It explores such topics as nature of social media and the use of it. It also makes the players experience feelings of being mobbed on social media and of being a part of a crowd that bullies others.

Are you new to Larp?

Don’t despair! We have all been there, and here follows a few tips that might be helpful for the larp beginner.
Grenselandet mostly features "chamber larps". This is a genre of larps that typically lasts around four hours.

Chamber larps are often split in three parts:
  1. The workshops, where the group gets to know each other, and where you get to develop your character
  2. The actual play time
  3. The debrief, where you can get out of your role, and discuss the experience together
A few tips for a better experience:

*It's a good idea to wear comfortable, neutral, clothes. You should feel like you can move around freely.

*You don't need to bring anything. A bottle of water can be handy, but usually water is also available at the venue.

*Finally, and very importantly, remember that you can opt out of the larp at any moment if you need to!

What makes a good larp is different from one person to another. However, it can be useful to think about what kind of experience you are looking for, and what’s important to you:
Are you looking for a smaller or a bigger group of players? 
Something with a lot of talking or something nonverbal? 
A feel good game, a more dramatic one, a political one?

Last note: there will always be people at the venue that can answer questions about the larp or practicalities, don't hesitate to reach out to them!

We are thrilled that you are curious about larp, welcome to this wonderous world!
