 You receive a letter from your childhood friend who is haunted by a mysterious event in your shared past—and she needs your help. Kaidan Project: Walls Grow Thin is 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?
