3 AM Forever

The Wild Hunt:

Come join the eternal dance of the fae
and discover your heart's desire
Run 1 - Friday, August 12th - 16.00-02.00 - Copenhagen Denmark
Run 2 - Saturday, August 13th - 15.00-01.30 - Copenhagen Denmark

The Orpheus Theatre is known for the hazy, unreal midnight celebrations following its premieres and productions. Actors, art students, derelicts, junkies, the stars of yesterday, and the promising talent of tomorrow all creep in for that sordid dance-floor magic, for the slow, horny chaos of drugged up 3 AM confusion. Emerging in the early hours, steeped in bizarre regrets and haunting memories, you wonder whether everything really happened.

There are plenty of rumours that strange tragedies follow people at these parties, and that being involved in the theatre’s productions is dangerous. Few bother to see the shows – small weird affairs with short runs, and bizarre, haunting imagery. They come for the parties

There is a reason why The Orpheus is too strange to succeed, yet pulls in the hungry, the lonely, and the yearning. The fae lurk in the shadows, eager to touch the reality and spark of a human being. Eager to be changed by it. The fae feed every ambition and creative impulse, no matter how dangerous or self-destructive. For the faeries at their eternal party, there is no beauty as striking as that of human desperation.

 

Dance, human. Dance at the risk of having to dance for ever.

3 AM Forever is a larp set at the party following a premiere at The Orpheus. In the hours from when the show ends to the end of the night, you will lose yourself in your dreams, stumbling out as both less and more than what you were before. The memories of what you did might fill you with dread but you'd do it all over again.

 

3 AM Forever is:

  • A party larp set in the present day

  • Works heavily with meta-techniques to portray fae glamour

  • Light and audio as tools to transport the characters to another world

  • Will begin with a 2 hour workshop followed by 5 hours runtime

  • Most participants will be playing humans

In 3 AM Forever, you will dance, flirt, take risks, do something dumb, lose yourself, start a fight, reconcile, get seduced, make a bad bet, gossip, double down on your mistakes, lie, confess, and discover your heart's desire. You'll lose control as the boundaries between the real and the fae begin to blur. As the magic of the eternal party overwhelms you it matters less and less who's fae and who isn't. Eventually all act as the faerie.
 

3 AM Forever is the first in The Wild Hunt series of fae larps.

 

Price: Standard ticket 79 Eur, Sponsor Ticket 99 Eur, Subsidized Ticket 59 Eur.

If you’d like to make a weekend of it, we will be organising social events on the Saturday for the participants of run 1 and Sunday for Run 2! A debrief Brunch, social hang out during the day – including some light and optional Wild Hunt -themed programming. And on Saturday evening we will meet at a bar to party together out of character. It will be a fun-filled weekend!.

Content

The larp is played in a very physical style where dancing is dancing and fighting looks real. Real alcohol will be served, but players deemed too intoxicated to participate responsibly will be removed from play. 


All genders, sexualities, and bodies are invited to act wicked and be beautiful at this larp. During play you are likely to witness public displays of affection and sexuality, simulated but realistic-looking sex and violence.

A good minimum comfort level for participation is for you to hug a stranger tightly. But whether gentle intimacy, portrayed lust, or pretend violence, you will always have full control of your own body and of the story you are telling. You always choose who to touch and control who touches you. You can always leave any situation and step outside the play area to take a break from the fiction as needed.


The larp will use calibration mechanics such as the tap out. Calibration will be covered in the workshops so that participants have tools to direct their experience during the larp.
