ROGUE ARTIST ENSEMBLE’S
Kaidan Project: Walls Grow Thin
By Lisa Dring and Chelsea Sutton with Rogue Artists Ensemble
Directed by Sean T. Cawelti
October 5 – November 19, 2017
A voice calls out through the darkness, drowning us in echoes of wells and graveyards, in tangles of hair and snow, in sharp reflections of our darkest and most human moments. Kaidan Project: Walls Grow Thin is a multi-sensory, site-specific experience refracting ancient Japanese ghost stories through a modern, multi-cultural lens, revealing the noise of our histories and the silences that haunt us. A small group of audience members enters a room, guided by a voice, each room a different story — will you complete the ritual?
