Workshop for live action role play by Brody Condon


Brody Condon’s Level Five (2010–ongoing) is a live action role playing (LARP) event that investigates the ideological legacy of controversial large group self-actualization seminars from the 1970s in America. These seminars were large, emotionally intense sessions that attracted thousands of participants, who hoped to unlearn societal constraints and achieve personal transformation.

Taking place over a weekend, Level Five invites participants, led by a trained seminar leader and assistants, to arrive in character and immerse themselves in an intensive program organized by the artist comprising of lectures, physical processes, and rites of sharing.

The Berlin Biennale audience is invited to follow the seminar’s process through the glass doors of the Plenarsaal at Akademie der Künste.

If you would like to participate to Level Five on September 17 to 18, please register at www.levelfive.berlin.


Closed performance, can be observed by visitors with a Berlin Biennale ticket from outside the room.
