(AKA: Begyndelse)

RPG system: LARP
Participants: 10-15 players


✏️Nina Runa Essendrop


Beginning starts at the dawn of time, where a group of blind beings slowly comes to life. The scenario is about the beings and their meeting with themselves, each other and the ever-changing world they live in. Through an extensive pre-larp workshops, the players get familiar with moving and playing when not seeing, and are taken into a magical world of sound, smells and feelings, but with no sight. Gradually, the beings learn to move in different ways and explore the world and the other creatures that live there. Beginning is an abstract scenario, focusing on the bodily and the senses.

Content Warnings: Players will be blindfolded for the duration of the larp (and parts of the workshop). Play includes communication and exploration through touch.

Under hele scenariet vil spillerne have bind for øjnene, men de vil under tiden blive hjulpet på vej af behandskede hænder, der i spillets univers er højere magters forsigtige indgriben.

Genre: Begyndelse er et abstrakt scenarie, der fokuserer på det kropslige og det sanselige.
Spilelementer: Spillere skal have bind for øjnene under hele scenariet.
