KWAIDAN is a cinematic and atmospheric piece inspired by Japanese ghost stories and horror movies. It combines life-sized puppets, humanettes, acting and video projections.

Kwaidan tells the story of Haru, a young woman who comes back to her abandoned family house after many years of absence. Strange events happen as the house seems to be inhabited by spirits and ghosts from the past. As the action unfolds, the memory of a terrible event resurfaces.

Kwaidan has received funding from Arts Council England, Japan Society and Great-Britain Sasakawa Foundation and is supported by Horse and Bamboo Theatre, Norwich Puppet Theatre, Little Angel Theatre (Incubate), The National Puppetry Archive, British Unima and Metal Culture.
