*The pilot game will take place on 4.3. for a small group. The participants originally signed up will be contacted directly by the working group.

Deep Time Transcestors -larp is a speculative fiction about evolution. The game opens up a multidimensional time-space continuum, in which players can explore how it feels to embody their trans ancestors’ bodies in this time. The players travel through the queer prehistory through somatic and fictive exercises. The aim for the players is to embody the fundamental queerness of evolution, and display the source of life as trans and non-binary.

The players study their prevertebrate, throbbing and watery bodies through sense and movement. As the game advances, the players form protective hybrid trans ancestor symbionts in physical contact with each other.* The game is mostly non-verbal and centers on movement and touch. Essential game and consent techniques are rehearsed before the game.

The game is open for transgender, non-binary, and genderqueer players.

Languages: Finnish and English.
