Description

Two cultures live in neighbouring countries. Not friends and not enemies, each minding their own business. Then catastrophe hits one country forcing the inhabitants to flee and seek refuge among their foreign neighbours.

Strangers is an abstract larp, which uses physical methods such as sign language and simple movement routines to create two cultures and the feeling of belonging or not belonging to these. The larp is about refugees trying to fit in and about the people who they try to fit in amongst.

Strangers is an abstract, physical larp about integration. Players play the inhabitants of two different countries with very different cultures. During the larp the people from one country has to flee their land and live in the other country, where they don’t know the language or the way to go about everyday life. The larp is non-verbal. It uses physical methods such as sign language and simple movement routines to create the two cultures and the feeling of belonging or not belonging to them. It explores the situation of refugees trying to fit in, and the reactions among the people who they try to fit in amongst.

To kulturer lever i hver deres land, som støder op til hinanden. De er ikke venner og ikke fjender, men passer hver især sig selv. Så indtræffer katastrofen, og det ene lands beboere må flygte og søge tilflugt hos deres fremmede naboer.

Fremmede er et abstrakt rollespil, som bruger fysiske metoder så som tegnsprog og simple bevægelsesrutiner til at skabe to kulturer og følelsen af at tilhøre eller ikke at tilhøre disse. Rollespillet handler om flygtninge og om det folk, som de prøver at passe ind iblandt.
