The Things We Left Behind
PhD fellow Eliot Moleba, Academy of Theatre, presents a larp as part of his doctoral artistic research.
Regardless of our varied reasons to migrate, the journey always begins with packing. While some might have the luxury of time and resources to contemplate what to bring, others only have a moment’s notice to take what they can. This LARP invites you to traverse the layers of things we lose and gain, the challenges and opportunities we meet in the process of migrating.
What will you pack when you leave?
Players will play members of a collective trying to balance their personal needs with the needs of the collective. Throughout the larp, the characters will have to flee different situations, forcing them to leave many of their possessions behind each time. With time working against them, players will have to decide what to pack or leave behind.
What is LARP, you ask? Larp stands for live action role play and is an improvised form of play without an audience, usually embodying a character. You don’t need prior experience to join us. The design is easy to play for someone who hasn't done it before. Just bring your curiosity.
How does it work? There is a workshop before the larp to introduce the setting and techniques, the larp is followed by a debrief to collect feedback on the experience. Everything is opt-in. Please wear comfortable clothes.
