Summer is just around the corner, and with it comes the return of Sydney Festival. The yearly festival promises a month of comedy, art installations, theatre and more — and the 2020 program is no exception. While there are many festival highlights to see, one of the more obscure events is the world premiere of physical theatre experience Night parade of one hundred goblins at the Art Gallery of NSW.

Kicking off midway through the Sydney Festival, the show takes you on a twilight exploration of the supernatural world of Japanese folklore. Created by the absurdist Clockfire Theatre Company and led by drumming from multi-instrumentalist Masae Ikegawa, the theatrical procession will move past manga-influenced murals by illustrator Kentaro Yoshida and explore otherworldly themes.

Then, Night parade... will head into the gallery's major exhibition Japan supernatural: 1700s to now. While you make your way through the gallery by lantern light, you'll catch some kyōka (Japanese 'mad poetry') performed by actors alongside a haunting soundtrack composed for this event by Tokyo-based producer and singer-songwriter Eiko Ishibashi, who performed at this year's Dark Mofo.

Night parade of one hundred goblins runs Thursday through Friday nights, from January 16–25, 2020. You can opt for either a 7.45pm or 9.15pm session each night. Grab your tickets here
