Lafcadio: A Ghost Story, as part of Sydney Fringe (ages 5-12)

Accompanying Sean is Taikoz’s Sophie Unsen and her little friend the taiko, Japanese for ‘big drum’. Sophie’s taiko creates a thrilling live soundtrack to the spooky silliness of Sean’s storytelling. An enthralling physical comedy that will have audiences gasping and giggling in equal measure, it’s 60 minutes like no other!
