The Tin Soldiers (DK) is a larp about a group of children who find a world of hope and dreams together, and fights evil. Every night, they meet to tell the truth about what happened that day, and to decide on their new goals.
As a player, you will play as both the children in the real world, and the children as heroes in a fantasy world. When playing, the children will undergo a transformation to either angel or demon. Towards the end, the two sides will confront each other.
Tin Soliders by Frederikke B. Høyer is based on a concept by Kari K. Djukastein and Frederikke B. Høyer.

Our next addition to the programme is a larp about school shootings, and one of the school shootings carried out by a female perpetrator.
I don’t like Mondays (DK) by Ann Kristine Eriksen is a surreal drama and insight to Brenda’s identity during the six months prior to the shooting. Each player plays a different version of Brenda. As the scenario progresses the barriers between the three versions of Brenda are torn down and her dream and realities becomes indistinct.

We follow a band during their last summer tour in the late 70ies. It’s love, drama, music & party. We’ll play five party nights – once for each month of the tour – and tell the story of the band’s love and lives. It’s new meetings, endings and longing for something more. The music of ABBA is used to express the characters inner feelings. We’ll sing and dance out our emotions for maximum drama.
The larp uses a buildup similar to freeform scenarios but with several similar groups playing at the same time. This takes away the focus on individuals and the larp is suitable regardless of vocal skills. We’ll sing along to playback and do not do karaoke.

Strangers is an abstract larp which uses physical methods such as sign language and simple movement routines to create two cultures and the feeling of belonging or not belonging to these. It aims to explore refugees trying to fit in, and the reactions among the people who they try to fit in amongst.

Wilt (DK/NO) by Karete Jacobsen Meland and Mads Jøns Frausig is about the different phases after ending a romantic relationship. You will interacting mainly with the person playing your partner, starting with the actual breakup and ending with the characters moving towards hope in the life to come. Wilt aims at creating an abstract, somewhat introspective atmosphere, in which the players individually create their own meaning.
Wilt is played out non-verbally, and every scene is introduced and instructed through a guided meditation, and includes different physical restrictions in which the two characters of the relationship in one way or another have to renegotiate the relation they have to each other.

Borderline is a journey inwards in search of the undefinable in our identities. It pose the question; ‘what is identity?’ and explores the constant negotiation between opposite elements that continuously creates and recreates our person.
In the larp two players will embody the opposite sides of the same character and each will try to pull the character in their own direction, while together they create and negotiate the character in order to complete the journey inwards to the core of identity in the surreal universe, which is the inner space.
