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.

The Testimony

Deep inside, we are all xenophobic, sorting people into "us" and into "them".

The Testimony (SE), by Susanne Gräslund and Anders Hultman, is a story about what happens when the thin polish of civilization bursts. It is a feel bad scenario about the course of events in a small village in eastern Poland, during the first years of WWII. In a war struck countryside, the Catholics turned against their neighbors, an almost equally large Jewish population, burned them alive or killed them in other bestial ways. 

Because almost everyone who survived were either directly involved in the killings, or benefited from them, the truth was denied for a very long time, and was not unveiled until recently. 

With the help of storytelling techniques we will revisit the events that took place in Jedwabne. 

You will be playing a witness and a perpetrator, trying to remember your part in the murders that happened so many years ago. You will be reliving your memories from the massacre, as the story of what happened in the little village unfolds, with the help of fragments from different testimonies. 
There will be brutality, horrors and death. In the end you will have to make a final choice.
