Kwaidan is the new show from the acclaimed Rouge28 Theatre. Inspired by Japanese ghost stories and horror movies, Kwaidan is a chilling cinematic and atmospheric experience. It deftly combines life-sized puppets, humanette, shadow and live performance.
Kwaidan tells the story of Haru, a young woman who returns to her abandoned family home after many years of absence. Strange happenings begin as the house seemingly inhabited by spirits and ghosts from the past awaken. As the action unfolds, the memory of a terrible event resurfaces.
Kwaidan has received funding from Arts Council England, The Japan Foundation, The Great Britain Sasakawa Foundation, The Japan Society, It is also supported by Horse+Bamboo Theatre, Norwich Puppet Theatre, Little Angel Theatre, and Metal Culture.
