From the introduction:
In my teens and early 20’s I was member of Folklorna Skupina Iskra (roughly translating to ‘Folklore Group Iskra’), a Slovenian folk dancing troupe. Over the years we performed folk dances from a number of regions around Slovenia - mainly Gorenjska, Prekmurje, Bela Krajina, Primorska regions. These dances ranged from simple and fun games to endurance dances which risked both life and limb. My Freeform Larp was inspired by my love of the dances which mimicked common, daily rituals, weaving well-worn tasks with rich music and dance.
Nostalgic memories intertwined with a simple alliterative title, creating madcap impromtu dances practiced in lounge rooms, sofa cushions tossed, hurriedly and haphazardly and polka tunes stuck in heads for days on end. Polka Pillow Production aims to immerse players, if only for a moment, into a small country village, where everyone knows everyone, early to bed and early to rise is the practice and a hard days work is it's own reward. Enter into this world, and prepare to produce pillows and practice your polkas!
