Roleplay: much more than swords | postponed

Susan Mutsaers and Kathelijne Penterman
Dinsdag 23 november 2021, 20:00 - 22:00
Blauwe Zaal, Auditorium
Prijs: Gratis (Student) Gratis (Anderen)

When you mention ‘roleplay’ or L.A.R.P. (live action role playing), many times one prejudice after another pops up. But roleplay is in fact more diverse than you might think. It’s more than just swords or recreation; it can be used to great effect in, for instance, education, philosophy, psychology and working skills.

This program will be postponed. The new  date will be announced in due time on this website.

The evening will evolve around roleplay: the definitions, history, types and functions. Besides a lecture, there will also be different (live-action) roleplay-workshops in which you can participate under professional guidance by Dutch L.A.R.P. designer Susan Mutsaers, who worked on  15 different L.A.R.P. and pervasive storytelling productions, and Kathelijne Penterman (TU/e alumnus). You will personally experience something new through acting and empathy. Think of real-life dilemmas or situations in which a completely different group than your own - e.g., refugees, the elderly, or executive board members - could end up.

This program is organized by Studium Generale and ESRG Knights of the Kitchen Table (the roleplaying game, board game, and larp association of the Eindhoven University of Technology).

Please note: You can only attend this program on campus. There will be no online livestream.
