|The characters Kohana and Artie at JALL 2013|
The third run of Just a Little Lovin' happened in Denmark the 5th - 10th of August this year. Thanks to organizers Flemming Jacobsen, Nynne Rasmussen and Helene Willer Piironen for bringing this game to Denmark. Thanks also to Petter Karlsson and Morgan Jarl who joined us as workshop facilitators and on-site organizers. We had a wonderful diner called "Pepper´s" on site thanks to the efforts of Jonas Trier, Anders Lyng Ebbehøj, Søren Lyng Ebbehøj and Carsten Prag. And thanks once again to Astrid Solgaard for lending us artwork specially made as scenography for Just a Little Lovin'
But most of all thanks to the 64 participants who came, loved and lost and partied like it was 1982-83-and-84. "The show must go on." This year we had participants from Denmark, Sweden, Norway, France, Germany and UK.
We are sure that this is not the last time it will be possible to experience Just a Little Lovin´. The writers and original organizers Hanne Grasmo and Tor Kjetil Edland would like to make available the characters and script for the game to potential new organizer groups.
To be able to get access to the material for Just a Little Lovin´ with the intention of running it, we have decided on a few criteria that must be in place for us to give the green light:
- There must be a defined production crew of sufficient size with individuals committed to seeing the project being realized.
- At least one person in the organizer group must have previously played the larp.
- At least one person in the organizer group must have done an organizer workshop held by Hanne and Tor Kjetil or been part of organizing a previous run of the game.
- The production crew must be committed to making an event that is LGBT inclusive and inclusive of people living with HIV, both in their communication with participants and how the game´s content is presented and played.
There are already plans for a rerun in Denmark the summer of 2015. When a place and date is decided on, more information will become available here.
Lots of love,
Lots of love,
Hanne and Tor Kjetil
