“Readiness” is a Chamber LARP (Live Action Role Playing Game) for 8-16 Players and a Game Master that takes place inside the “Encampment”, a fictional campsite constructed by the Preppers to protect themselves against an upcoming apocalypse of mysterious origins. “Readiness” is informed by current global turmoil and the attitudes of survival, alienation and vigilance built around it. It combines elements of gaming culture, performance, and post-media art.
The LARP will play out over 4 days, including an introduction and character building workshop and 3 Acts played in real time over 3 days. Players of “Readiness” will be assigned to one of 3 Clans (Preppers, Horde, Boogaloos) and given a Character Outline, who they can further design and refine. Once the Game starts, the Players will continuously be in character and asked to respond to various challenges and achieve their goals within the given scenario. The LARP will be broadcasted as a Live Stream and recorded for further editing and exhibition.
