Live-action role playing (LARP) has become one of the hottest fan experiences of the decade thanks to huge events like The College of Wizardry, a Harry Potter inspired multi-day extravaganza set in an actual Polish castle; Monitor Celestra, an intense interactive Battlestar Galactica LARP adaptation set aboard a Swedish battleship, and Inside Hamlet, which reinvented Shakespeare's classic play inside the real Castle Elsinore. With increased media exposure like the new feature documentary Treasure Trapped, more people than ever are discovering and enjoying this thrilling performance artform. Panelists will explain what LARPs are and how you can get involved, show off clips from these blockbuster LARPs, and make a few big announcements. Featuring Kaza Marie Ayersman (The LARP Girl), CeciliaDolk (marketing director, Odyssé), MoMo O'Brien (YouTuber), DavidPulcifer (The Larp City Project), Matthew Sturdy (editor, Treasure Trapped), and Alex Taylor (director, Treasure Trapped).
