Buy tickets Pascal Rambert’s first time directing in Taiwan

Among poetry and a banquet, the living and their souls dance to a charming song.

In a pure white space with doors, windows and a table, a white hue is cast upon a family of six siblings who are preparing dinner together. This seemingly ordinary family gathering is an unusual beckoning of emotions. Everything feels familiar, yet peculiar and unsettling.

GHOSTs is a four-act-play that tells the story of six young siblings engaged in family rituals like cooking, dining, boozing and tea drinking, which Pascal Rambert transforms into a summoning of death and memory. Bit by bit, the siblings piece their family back together.

Combining poetry and the imagery of apparitions, GHOSTs uses a concise, compelling and fantastic form to present a family history that begins with absence, and a beautiful dialogue between the living and the dead.
