We picked a few short games, new and old, and mixed a slot of 1 hour nano-games. These scenarios you will be able to sign up to at the festival.
DaDa Means Nothing
Dadada – Pluplubasch – Tzara
DaDa is a new tendency in larp. One can tell this from the fact that until now nobody knew anything about it, and tomorrow everyone in Knutpunkt will be talking about it. Dada comes from the dictionary. It is terribly simple. In French it means “hobby horse”. In German it means “good-bye”, “Get off my back”, “Be seeing you sometime”. In Romanian: “Yes, indeed, you are right, that’s it. But of course, yes, definitely, right”. And so forth. Read more.

Surreal – Experimental – Still
Hypnopompia is a short, experimental scenario about how dreams are created. It’s a story without beginning and end, a weave of dreams that you’ve previously had. It’s a limitless journey that make together, behind the eyelids of one of you. Read more.

Sex – Love – Expectations
She wants love, he wants sex. We follow their relationship from first meeting, first date and to the bitter end. They meet, have sex – and do inner monologues. How do you make it work when it is broken from the beginning? Read more.
