In a small group of sixteen, you enter a mysterious warehouse and ascend to the fifth floor in a creaking freight elevator. A voice calls out through the shadows, drowning you in echoes of wells and engines 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 enters a room alone, guided by a voice, each room a different story - will you complete the ritual?
Kaidan Project is a walking show in a secret six-story storage facility built in 1927. Audiences will travel through over 9,500 square feet of themed environments. The play contains mature themes, adult language, and theatrical violence, and is not recommended for audience members who are not comfortable with walking, ducking, navigating small spaces, standing for periods of time, loud noises, moments of complete darkness, or being alone. Address and entry information for this secret location will be provided after tickets have been purchased.
