Ludosport – lightsaber workshop

4. October 2016 Captain NoBeard Activities, Fun and games, Guests, News, Panels and workshops 0 Comments

In Italy back in 2006 some sporty nerds came together to form the first LudoSport academy, a place where people could come together to practice the techniques designed for “real” combat with lightsabers. It has developed to a true sport and spread across europe. We are incredibly excited to have it at Banzaicon for (as far as we know) the first time in norway! Come along for a demonstration of the sport , as well as the chance to try it yourself!  If you have your own combat saber (not vfx saber) feel free to bring it along. If not, make sure to show up early for the chance to borrow one.
May the force be with you!

Kpop Dance Roulette

25. September 2016 Captain NoBeard Activities, Dances and parties, Fun and games, Stage shows 0 Comments

Are you into Kpop? Have you spent hours glued to your computer or TV screen obsessing over dance steps? Well, here’s your chance to show off your moves in a kpop dance roulette! We’ve made an hour long compilation of some of the most known kpop songs and choreographies in the form of short clips. If you hear a song to which you know the steps, then don’t be afraid to throw yourself onto the dance floor! Each session will last for 1 hour and include a varied mix of songs from girl and boy groups throughout the past decade. This is not a competition so there won’t be any prizes, except of course street cred and maybe some new friendships! And loads of fun! If you like kpop but don’t know any dances yet, don’t be afraid to come and watch, because the more the merrier!

Warm up to saturday’s show-extravaganza by cooling  it down with a game of Freeze! This is one of our our traditional Banzai games, where the audience gets to participate in improvising short scenes on stage, until they are interrupted and the scene takes a whole new turn. If you like things that are funny, impulsive and creative, this is your kind of game.
