2018 Malmö Talks

1942: Representing History – Tor Kjetil Edland

1942 was a larp made in the tradition of 360 degrees illusion. In his talk Tor Kjetil Edland will give some examples of what this meant for the experience of the participants and how the larp related to factual history and our connection to this history.

Tor Kjetil Edland is a larp- and scenario-writer who has been the organiser of larps such as Mad about the Boy, Just a Little Lovin’, KoiKoi and 1942 and freeform and blackbox scenarios such as Limbo, New Voices in Art, Say a Little Prayer and House of Cravings.
