Zhong Kui, known as the ghost catcher, is frustrated about the unfair treatment he once received due to his facial appearance. Assisted by the White Bone Spirit, a shape-shifting demoness, who ended up in hell when she resisted her abusers, Zhong Kui catches a ride on a drone and leaves the hell of ancient times. He is now among us as a computer specialist behind a screen, who catches bots and viruses.

For their first collaboration, eteam (conceptual new media artists from NYC) and the Hong Kong Puppet and Shadow Arts Center (dedicated to keeping alive the ancient art of Chinese string, hands and shadow puppets) have turned the gallery into a stage and developed a powerful play that combines ancient stories and analog story telling technologies with the digital tools and scripts we have available now.
