Do you go home early during the seventh month to avoid bumping into… things? Have you ever heard a voice in your ear and turned around to find there’s no one there? Do you believe in the unseen? Are you pantang?
This Halloween, join the cast and crew of Pantang as they bring you on a journey into the realm of spirits and other unseen things, based on first-‐hand accounts and interviews. You’ll find the locale of our stories somewhat familiar, but because the stories happened to people we know and aren’t from a book, they’ll make you lao jio (wet your pants) in fresh and surprising ways…
Here are some of the strange and spooky stories from the show:
• A young couple moves into a flat built on the location of a fatal plane crash and encounters a tragedy of their own.
• A soldier on guard duty finds a photograph of a beautiful young girl on the ground and falls into a baffling trance.
• We interview a man born with the “third eye” who tells us all about the invisible world of spirits around us. Pantang presents these stories using narratives, shadow-‐play, multimedia projections, puppetry and re-‐enactments. But most of all, Pantang is about good old-‐ fashioned story telling. If you would like to have a good scare this Halloween and celebrate our rich local tradition of ghost stories at the same time, come watch Pantang. Some people, they don’t believe… but Pantang will make believers of us all.
