Seaside Prison 15-22.6


Finland is under occupation. You live in Marienhamn, Åland Islands. The city has become an open-air prison. Once in a while it is bombed. You stare at the sea. There is a wedding coming. It could be the last time you celebrate with family and friends.

Seaside Prison is an immersive experience for 8-16 participants. It takes place in an alternative reality where Åland is like Gaza. We use the method of larp in a black box theatre environment. You don’t need to have previous larp experience or prepare for the event. Our workshop will give you all the tools you need.

Seaside Prison is a Palestinian-Finnish-Norwegian collaboration. After the experience, participants will have the chance to discuss with Majed Abusalama who is a refugee from Jabalia refugee camp in Gaza and a Ph.D. candidate in the Palestine Research Group at Tampere University.
