Self-Realization! Conspiracies! The Last Man On Earth!

Do you like larp documentation? I do, and so far 2010 is making me very happy.

First up: “Mad About The Boy” (website), the Nordic arthaus larp about a world where all men are dead and a group of women are competing for the privilege of artificial insemination until * suddenly * the last man alive appears. Li Xin took some excellent photos: Mad About The Boy, First Run.

These pictures were taken in-character, and some of them ended up as plot devices on the larp. But there’s more! Here’s Anna-Karin‘s video documentation from the same event:

Also, if you want a look at video documentation with huge production values, there’s a set of excellent videos from the pervasive larp “Conspiracy for Good”, a Tim Kring + Company P + Nokia production, with prominent Nordic larpers prominently featured on both sides of the camera.

And last but freshest, Brody Condon (previously mentioned in connection to SonsbeekLive), is at it again, this time with an art-context-larp about self-actualization courses:
