We emerge from the feeble leaves of change,
forgotten stories, remnants of legends.
We long for you in between fears and hopes,
myths, key to hidden doors.
Feel the jaws,
the hunter chases you in the twilight of dreams.
An old lady awaits with a forced smile,
The pale skin bright behind the mirror,
dreaming of desire.
Leave your fear behind, your destiny awaits you
– You are on the threshold of Niria, land of tales –
This is a larp about magic realism and common people’s paranoia.
A search for a meaning in constant belief and disbelief.
Following a fatuus fire out of desperation and dangerous curiosity.
The search for something impossible called Niria.
Niria Took place in Vienna, the 29-30th of September of 2017.
Niria is an international, English language, urban larp in which participants give life to common people whose reality has been shattered by folk tales – which have their own rules and desires.
A modern reinterpretation of the folk tales and their motifs, a magic realism experience in which our daily world will be seen through the eyes of superstition and delirium.
A co-creative experience in which you will create your own tale with the help of others.
The majestic city of Vienna and its most hidden secret places will serve as its setting.
