    Weltschmerz #2 : Europa

    Weltschmerz is an Oslo-based network of artists and LARP organisers who aim at bringing you intense LARP experiences from our own world, now.

    Our second slice of the world is Europa, an asylum reception centre in Orsinia - a peaceful, wealthy, fictional state somewhere on the Balkans. The Nordic countries are left wrecked and traumatised by the "Nordic conflicts" - a series of wars worse than those that hit former Yugoslavia in the 1990's.

    The characters of our drama are refugees from these conflicts. Having applied for political asylum in Orsinia, they spend their days awaiting an answer at the isolated reception centre, sharing the fleeting dreams and real nightmares of Europe.

    You can read more about Europa in the vision and facts sections.

  • Thou shalt leave everything beloved most dearly;
    and this is the arrow which the bow of exile first shoots.
    Thou shalt prove how the bread of others savors of salt,
    and how the descending and the mounting of another's stairs is a hard path.

    - Dante Alighierei, Paradise, Canto XVII
