Monsters on Parade: Yao-Chi City … Ghosts, Ghosts Everywhere!

In lands beyond distant mountains and urban sprawl, the wind still sets forests aquiver and sounds still echo from all sides. The evil-doing demons and monsters among us await the witching hour to once more claw their way into the heart of the city.

In this section, a vulgar assemblage of monsters invite you to join them through kinetic installations, itinerant performances, and traditional puppet theater plays.
