Luminescence, also known as "The Flour Larp", was a four-hour long larp in 2004, in [A Week In Finland] before [Solmukohta 2004]. Luminescence is a game about cancer patients in music therapy. They all all going to die and attempt to come to terms with this fact. The players are semi-naked in a roomful of flour, which has been defined as ”normal” within the game.
