About this show

Ping Chong's critically acclaimed Kwaidan returns to New York City. The legendary conceptualizer and director brings to life three Japanese ghost stories by expatriate American Lafcadio Hearn, who went to Japan in 1890 and never left. The stories are presented with three-dimensional and shadow puppets. Atlanta's award-winning artist Jon Ludwig and Japan's critically-acclaimed designer Mitsuru Ishii collaborated with Chong to make this production into a highly imagistic, interdisciplinary work embodying the magic, spectacle, and spirituality of Japan, a country in transition, from the Meiji era to the 20th century.
