Live Action Role-Play written by Lizzie Stark
19 November 4 – 9pm

Want to be an Artist, or a different Artist? IN RESIDENCY is an American Freeform game about the relationship between trauma and art. This Live Action Role-Play (larp) features politically and socially satirical facets, often thought of as more familiar to the Nordic genre of larp. These darker, psychologically perplexing games, propose a release from the obligations and ramifications of our everyday lives while still existing in a familiar ideological realm.

Everything Gucci is a tribute to Gucci Mane, the currently incarcerated Atlanta-based rapper. Gucci’s work details the underground economy of the post-industrial Southern United States. Drawing on a history of labour and song, Angell will present field recordings which position Gucci’s work within the traditions of gospel, country blues, agricultural songs, auctioneering and songs found in juvenile detention centres and prisons. The performance will be followed by a DJ set of contemporary Atlanta rap, also by Noah Angell.

Outside the fortress walls is desert, dry as coal. But the walls inside are soft, and they will keep you. I will take care of you. You can rest here. I will care for you so diligently that I will inevitably fantasise about your death. I will touch you carefully, delicately, as I imagine your destruction. You are almost too delicate to survive; your body is on the point of disintegrating.
