Mythic Consequences, November 21–24, 2019, Naish Holiday Village, Christchurch, Dorset
Strangers is a non-verbal larp exploring the themes of differing cultural norms, and how they are challenged by and adapt to the arrival of members of other cultures. The larp is abstract, and uses music and movement to workshop cultural identities. This is done by the players evolving a daily routine together within their randomly assigned culture as well as the ways in which the members of each culture interact socially with each other. Players will then explore the experience of those two cultures coming into contact as members of one culture arrive as refugees in the other one. The game explores themes such as culture, social isolation, identity, and reactions to change.

Christi is Not Dead Yet, and is hoping she's on a roll in that respect. She has been to every single Consequences, and is uncertain whether to be proud or ashamed of that fact.
