“EVERYONE IS A MOON, AND HAS A DARK SIDE WHICH HE NEVER SHOWS TO ANYBODY”
The Secrets We Keep is a profound, deeply emotional experience about childhood, memory and lost innocence; a real treasure.
This larp is an incredible experience, full of emotions, with an incredible story that you will want to uncover. Can not recommend this enough.
An amazing experience I can recommend to anyone who likes immersive, emotional Larping
The Secrets We Keep moves beautifully between past and present, joy and terror, connection and rejection, and with immense sensitivity it creates a larp experience to hold deep in the heart.
Thid larp combines clever narrative techniques, great mood setting and interesting, open writing to build an intimate, co-creative experience that you feel deeply as it unfolds.
THE SECRETS WE KEEP
You all grew up in the same orphanage.
You were a band.
When one of you died, you were split apart.
A long time has gone by.
You all grew.
You all changed.
A band of orphaned children with a dark past meets again after many years. Buried secrets are unearthed as old wounds start bleeding once again. What have you become? Can you escape what you really are?
A grim, intimate psychological narration. An isolated place, where no one can hear you. These are the secrets we keep.
PERSONAL, PSYCHOLOGICAL, PROFOUND
The secrets we keep is a high-value live action roleplaying game. An exclusive experience for 35 players.
Focused on interpretation and on relationship, it was designed to be an intimate, powerful event, aiming directly for the hearts and minds of its players.
A deep larp about memory, regret, hidden truths, delving into what we were, what we are and what we do not want to be.
LOOSELY INSPIRED BY:
THE 80’S AND 90’S THAT NEVER WERE
A time when computers were rudimentary and huge cellphones were only affordable for a select, wealthy few.
A time when TV sets had cathode tubes and music was played on small cassettes.
The era of Blockbuster and VHS rentals.
The years of historical countercultures, of metalheads, of punks, of nerds and geeks, of goths and so many more.
The age of indestructible plastic toys, when modernity had yet to ripen. An age so close and yet so far away.

Historical, solitary, powerful. Hiding mysteries, silences, secrets.
Imagine… it’s night, you walk barefoot across the courtyard of the orphanage to go steal some of that leftover chocolate from dinner. Then a sound, laughter, someone running away hearing you coming, what if Slitface? A shiver runs down your spine. It seems like yesterday that all this happened to you, but the past is still here….
