Experiencing music through body and fiction

LARP (Live Action Roleplay) is a medium which uses play, rules and fictions to explore different ways of perceiving or experiencing the world, yourself and your interactions with others. This workshop focusses on LARPing with music and sound.

In the workshop we will use a poetic, abstract and physical kind LARP which emphasizes presence and felt experiences. We will explore the experience of music and sound through LARP methods like characters, fiction and narratives. We will work with music and sound as ways to create intuitive connections, explore music and sound in relation to movements and we will play at least one small music based LARP.
