Sunday 12th May, 1pm – 5pm: Nina Runa Essendrop – Human Experience
Nina Runa Essendrop presents Human Experience in the Chapel Royal in Dublin Castle. Human Experience is a physical, immersive larp about the sensations we get from movements, touch and senses. The players play Ancient Consciousnesses who, for a brief period, get to experience life through a human body.
The Ancient Conciousnesses are gentle, slow and curious. They don’t understand rational logic but experience the world through poetic images and abstract sensations. Having a human body is new and overwhelming to them. In their short time as embodied creatures, they want to carefully experience the nuances in the way humans move and sense and to try to understand what it is like to be human and experience through a body.
Human Experience is played with an audience, who are part of the fiction of the larp. They are there to experiment with movements and senses and to follow and aid the Ancient Conciousnesses in their exploration.
