Rogue Artists Ensemble’s haunting ‘Kaidan Project: Walls Grow Thin’ extends at secret warehouse through Nov. 19

Tom Dang

WHAT:
Kaidan Project: Walls Grow ThinExtended through Nov. 19: A multi-sensory, site-specific experience refracting ancient Japanese ghost stories through a modern, multi-cultural lens. You receive a letter from a woman who is haunted by a mysterious event in her past—and she needs your help. When you arrive at her family’s warehouse, you ascend to the fifth and sixth floors in a creaking freight elevator, followed by a voice that 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 your darkest moments—a voice that may not be human. A small group of twelve enters a room alone, the walls begins to thin, and a dark spirit stirs within you – will you ever escape it?
