Human Experience is a physical, immersive larp about the sensations we get from movements, touch and senses. The players play Ancient Consciousnessess who shortly get to experience life through a human body. The Ancient Conciousnessess are gentle, slow and curious. They don’t understand rational logic but experiences the world through poetic images and abstract sensations. Having human bodies are 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 Conciousnessess in their exploration. The audience can help the Ancient Conciousnessess by showing them movements or describe sensations, thereby teaching the Ancient Conciousnessess how humans move and feel. In return the Ancient Conciousnessess can describe how these movements and sensations feels to creatures who have a poetic approach and experience everything as new.
