Description "Kaidan" is based on the Japanese ghost story "Of a Mirror", which tells the story of a woman whose life crumbles when she gives away an old family mirror - an often used metaphor for a woman's soul. While tragic, the story is also full of love, desire and ultimate release and is an exhilarating platform for the visions of an extraordinary collection of artists.
