2017 Live Action Role Plays and games for Horsens Happening

The Games
Hue/Boy developed a series of site specific games, one of them a Live Action Role Play (LARP) for the former Prison (Danish Fængslet) of Horsens as part of our festival Horsens Happening. In “Get Out of Jail, Free?”, curious kids and grown-ups experienced the former prison building in its historical function, and they were the prisoners. In a performance without peformers, the prisoners had to sneak past attentive prison guards through different rooms of the prison and steal a key to make it to freedom.

This and the other games developed by Hue/Boy are still available and can be played at the prison.

Christiane, aka Frau Hue was also part of the second Hitparaden Festival.
