Documentation for Contrapposto

Documentation for Contrapposto by Andrew Larimer, a short larp about an art heist played in an actual museum.

Organized by Jon Cole for Larp House.

Played in the Minneapolis of Art in November 2016 for 3 players.

Larp House Presents: Contrapposto

Players take on the roles of a team of amateur thieves hired to obtain a work of art. All players work together to identify which piece of art they’re after and plan how to steal it while balancing the team’s humorous assortment of skills & hangups.

In about an hour and a half, the team will case the joint, plan their caper & try to convince each other that this will work. And if the group can tolerate each other long enough to complete their scheme, it just might!

Contrapposto is part improv comedy and part exercise in teamwork, with a healthy respect for art & museums thrown in. Don’t worry: no actual laws will be broken while playing! It is a fun way to visit an art museum with a group of new friends.

WHAT:A freeform larp for 2-5 players. Written by Andrew Larimer and organized by Jon Cole
