Focus group study on gender exploration in larp

Kaya Toft Thejls

Workshop for Players

The aim of the study is to explore how larping as an embodied, playful practice can be used by trans*, non-binary and gender non-conforming people to explore gender, regardless of whether this is a focus of the larp itself. As such, I am interested in players’ experiences of and reflections on actively engaging with gender in larps.

Participants in the study should be trans*/non-binary/gender non-conforming and larpers, as well as have experience using larp as a place or medium to explore gender. Participants must be at least 18 years old to participate in the study. If you are interested in participating in the study, please email me at for more information. Any questions are also welcome!

 Participating in the study will mean participating in a group session of 3-4 hours where we will a) play a short, simple larp based on (traits from) a character you have played before and b) do a focus group discussion around your experiences of exploring gender in larp. At a later date we will do a follow-up individual interview of approximately 1 hour. For more information on the study/participation: If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to contact me at
