IMPORTANT ADDITIONAL UPDATE FOR PARTICIPANTS: You might get a bit dirty playing this larp. White sugar is one of the props used, and it tends to get on people. Nothing that stains, but in previous runs, some participants have ended up a bit sticky and shower-bound. Anyone planning to wear their fancy silk shirt might want to know this in advance. 

The larp White Death, by Nina Rune Essendrop and Simon Steen Hansen, revolves around a group of pioneers who travel into the mountains to create a new and better world. But life in the mountains is hard and demanding, and slowly, their community begins to fail. One by one, the snow will embrace them, giving them peace and rest, tranquility and light. 

This acclaimed Nordic larp is poetic, non-verbal, and emphasizes physical expression. Set to a soundtrack of Tom Waits, Nick Cave, and Jonny Cash, the larp guides players through feelings like anger, frustration, sorrow, and fear--and the peace and closeness that follow the characters' gentle deaths. In this larp, there are no words, instead, communication and interaction with others happens through physical movement. There are no secrets-- the experience focuses on the atmosphere rather than the outcome.

Important note: 
Please wear clothing that allows you to move comfortably, preferably all black clothing, if at all possible. Come prepared to try something a little different, and don't be surprised if you end up lying on the floor.
