Poetic – Sensory – Angels
By: Nina Runa Essendrop (dk)
Duration: 5 hours
Number of players: 3

 

Humans are ever present. They see the world in colors. They feel and they think and they walk on two feed.

They touch the water and feel the cold softness of the surface. They gaze at the horizon and think deep thoughts about their existence.

Human being feel the wind against their faces, they laugh and they cry and their pleading eyes seeks for a meaning in the world surrounding them. They breath too fast and they forget to feel the ground under their feed or the invisible hand on their shoulder, which gently offers them comfort and peace.

Angels exist among the humans. Invisible and untouchable they witness how humans live their lives. Their silent voices gently forms mankind’s horizons, far away and so very very close that only children and dreamers will sense their presence.

“Among us” is a poetic and sensuous scenario about a lonely human being, an angel who chooses the mortal presence and an angel who continues to be the invisible guardian of mankind.

It is a slow and thoughtful experience focussing on how beautiful, difficult and meaningful it is to be a human being. The scenario is played as a chamber larp and the players will be prepared for the play-style and tools through a preparatory workshop.

The scenario is based on the film “Wings of Desire” by Win Wender.
