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, Japan Society and The Great Britain Sasakawa Foundation and is supported by Horse+Bamboo Theatre, Norwich Puppet Theatre, Little Angel Theatre, The National Puppetry Archive, British UNIMA and Metal Culture.
