KWAIDAN is a cinematic and atmospheric piece for teenagers and adults inspired by Japanese ghost stories and horror movies. It features life-sized puppets, humanettes, shadows, acting and videos.

Set in Japan in the early 1980s, Kwaidan tells the story of Haru, a young woman who comes back to her abandoned childhood home after many years of absence. Strange events happen as the house seems to be inhabited by spirits and ghosts from the past. As the story 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, The National Puppetry Archive, British Unima and Metal Culture.
