Emotional

An intense and emotional larp about a subject we all can relate to: The Family. We explore the social norms and patterns guarding family structures in the Nordic countries. How old traditions lurk like demons under the surface and how hard it is to break free.

Dramatic

A larp based on dramatic stories from the world of theatre and intensified by meta techniques from free-form role-playing. The stories are written by the best playwrights of the Nordic countries, such as Ibsen and Strindberg.

Contemporary

The larp is set in the present time and all you need to bring is what you would wear to a 60th birthday party today. All preparations are done on location with our excellent Game Masters.

“At the very first Knutepunkt, the buzz-word was “magic moments” – and that’s the word I’d use to describe the play experience at “A nice evening with the family”: it was stuffed, crammed! with “magic moments” – some grand and public, some played in groups, many with only two or three participants (and perhaps a director in the background, whispering in your ear).”

Eirik Fatland

“A nice Evening with the Family was a landmark event in the Nordic larp tradition. It’s core ideas was to explore the bourgeois family through a larp which combined classic plays, the dogma film the Celebration and innovative metagame techniques. This combination created a larp that was artistically interesting, emotionally intense and pushed larp as a medium one step forward. For me personally it gave me my best larp experience ever.”
