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

Continental black box

We're happy to introduce our 2nd Dutch scenario for the festival - The Heist (NL) by Ruben de Boer.

A group of fishermen embark on a trading adventure. Somewhere in the Pacific they are caught in a maelstrom and their damaged ship is carried towards an undocumented island. The shade from the trees soothes the sunburnt skins and the fresh oranges revive the worn spirits of the fishermen. Soon hereafter their peace of mind is disturbed and the fishermen discover that, despite the fact that the island is not on the map, the island is not uninhabited. Confronted by the ‘Other’, players of The Heist will be faced by a difficult decision: stick to the own rules and habits or try to figure out this new culture?

The Heist is a non-verbal Blackbox larp focussing on the embodiment of shifts of power. The political theatre of the Theatre of the Oppressed and Michel Foucault’s theoretical insights on relational power drives the framework of the larp. “White Death”, a larp by Nina Runa Essendrop and Simon Steen Hansen, heavily inspires the setting and gaming style. This larp is analytically strong and meant to provoke reflexivity among players about the nature and effects of power.
