Larp Culture has grown up

Fria-Tidningen-2013-10-19-sm

Me and my friend Åke was interviewed in the weekend edition of Fria Tidningen about how larp culture has grown up and why we larp. The larp Just a Little Lovin’  is featured as well as some images from Terra Incognita, The Monitor Celestra and Krigshjärta (Heart of War).

When people ask why I’m am larping I usually ask why we consume culture at all?
Watching a movie is to experience something.
To larp is also to experience something.
We assume a role to experience something other than what we do in everyday life.
Without culture our imagination dies, and  larp involves a lot of imagination.
I think that it is a very important part of our humanity that we have imagination and play with it.
