Prosopopeia Bardo 2 "Momentum"


Prosopopeia Bardo 2 "Momentum", was a pervasive long-time larp staged in Sweden during October and November 2006. Thirty partipants took on characters as dead revolutionaries re-entering our world, this time to save their own from oblivion. The larp used a host of technology installations, mobile equipment, and an advanced system for game mastering to enable the game to be ongoing around the clock for 34 days.
