A cinematic and atmospheric theatre piece, inspired by Japanese ghost stories and horror movies, is coming to Stamford Arts Centre this February.

Combining life-sized puppets, humanettes, acting and video projections - this theatre production by Rouge 28 Theatre is set to wow audiences.

Kwaidan tells the story of Haru, a young woman who comes back to her abandoned family house after many years of absence. Strange events happen as the house seems to be inhabited by spirits and ghosts from the past. As the action unfolds, the memory of a terrible event resurfaces.

Rouge 28 fuse puppetry with different performance genres to produce original and intriguing visual theatre. Their work has been performed nationally and internationally and is a must for performing arts students and drama lovers alike.

This one-off performance will take place on Thursday, February 4 at 7.30pm. The show is for those aged 14+ and the running time will be approximately one hour, with no interval.

Tickets are priced at £12 each (£10 concessions) and £8.50 for students or for a group of 10 or more. To book visit the website or call the box office on 01780 763203.

Get a taste for Japan with free sushi after the show.
