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.

Katabasis



Katabasis (UK), by Susan Ploetz, Una Hamilton Helle and Francis Brady, is larp about cave descents, origin myths and group archetypes. It utilises non-verbal (with limited verbal) communication, physicality and symbol-making to create culture, narrative and play. 

Generations ago, our people fled into a vast system of caves to create a new world. The Myth says that we started as one large group, but, after the Great Divide, we were separated. 

There are stories that the others are still out there, but we haven’t encountered them. As we descend further into the vast network of caverns, we feel the presence and traces of the mythical others as they appear to us as symbols, detritus and echoes in the dark. 

We envision Katabasis as a flexible structure for those who want to think about the formation of societies and culture, as well as communication and the negotiation of differences.
It is a larp that explores these themes through myth and symbol creation; and ritualised movement and sound.
