A multi-sensory, immersive, 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 twelve enters a room alone, the walls begins to thin, and a dark spirit stirs within you - will you ever escape it?

Winner of 6 LA Stage Ovation Awards, Nominated for Production of the Year, 2018

“So well-crafted and artistically satisfying is the entire experience that I can't rave about it enough. This hybrid form of ghostly storytelling plunges you into the past from a today that precariously dances on a line somewhere north of reality and south of madness. In that realm, the possibilities are endless.” - Broadway World
