Tickets

Didn't get a ticket? - there is still a chance If you turn up at the door you can get a last minute ticket for a larp if there are vacant spots. This will cost NOK 150 (NOK 100 dicsounted). If you don't get a spot on a larp you will not have to pay anything. Previous years, we have been able to find a spot for last minute tickets about 80% of the time, so the odds are quite good.

Can I join the party even if not participating at Grenselandet? You need a ticket to come in. You can pay the price of a last minute ticket (NOK 150/100) even though you are not playing if you only want to join the party. Or better - you can sign up to help us with pratical stuff (mostly cooking) - and we will both feed you, love you and throw you a party. To volunteer, please contact us at admin@grenselandet.net.

Killed in the name of honour (PA)


The third larp we release for this year's Grenselandet programme is from Palestine. Killed in the Name of Honour raises the issue of honor killings, a phenomenon that is still a significant problem in Palestine and several other Middle Eastern countries. Killed in the Name of Honour is set in a fictional matriarchal society in early history. A young boy has been killed by his sister for disgracing his family. A trial ensues, where traditions is put against the right to life, in a village where social status has a stronger impact than rule of law.

Killed in the name of honour was first played at the Beit Byout festival in Ramallah in 2013. It was written by Bisan Samareh, Riham Kharroub and Urieb Samad for the Palestinian Larpwriter Challenge.
