Call for larp pitches

We want your larp ideas for Grenselandet 2020. Make a corona resilient larp or a dinner party larp!


We do not yet know which rules that will be in place when Grenselandet takes place in October, but unfortunately there is a risk that there will still be in place travel restrictions, social distancing rules and caps for the size of cultural events. Yet, we will do everything we can to run the event as closely as possible to what we have now done for 10 years. While we will continue to run high quality playtested larps, we also want to open up for new experiments this year through two challenges: Corona resilient larps or Dinner party larps.

A Corona-resilient larp is a larp that can accomodate one or more of the following criteria:

- Possibility for one or more players to play over video link.
- Possibility to play it even though players have to always be at least 1 metre apart.
- Scalability with regards to number of players
- In other regards adept to the corona situation
- Maximum four hours including workshops, no preparations required by the players

A dinner party larp fits the following criteria:

- Takes place around a dinner table
- Can be played in a regular dining room
- Lasts maximum one and a half hour (incl workshops)
- Rigging time takes maximum 30 mins
- 1-8 participants

Send your larp suggestion to us before July 1st, via the following link. If your larp is selected, you will get to attend Grenselandet free of charge.

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

The ticket sales for Grenselandet 2019 is now live. This is the 10th Grenselandet, and to celebrate the anniversary we are rerunning some of the most important chamber larps from the past decade. Don't miss out on this opportunity!

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.
