Erik Ullanderson discusses the inception and development of The Amazing Adventures of the Corporate Wizard in the Land of LARP, the recent event at the Soap Factory.
Working closely with Minnesota LARP-ers, artist Erik Ullanderson and The Soap Factory present a weekend of adventure, The Amazing Adventures of the Corporate Wizard in the Land of LARP. The Soap Factory comes to life as LARP-ers unfold their quests in the vivid environments designed by local and national artists.
Centering around a single character, The Corporate Wizard, the project is presented in a traditional LARP format, a structured script, controlled by a set of rules and driven by live action. Player Characters and Non-Player Characters will engage in a plot line initiated by the Corporate Wizard, a figure that embodies the morals of corporate America. Throughout the 72-hour event each Player Character will finds their way through the story line in a different way. No endings are written. The outcome of each quest is unknown.
