The night kicks off with a short talk at on Doggebi, a goblin-like creature of Korean folklore by UC Berkeley Professor Hilary Finchum-Sung. Next, dancer Kyoung-il Ong of the OngDance Company puts a contemporary spin on the creature, set to a mix of Korean classical music, drumming, and electronica performed by wHOOL.

Throughout the evening, encounter more mythological characters through guided tours of the galleries: demons in Indonesian puppets, legends and folk stories in Japanese netsukes (miniature sculptures adorning garments), imaginary animals on Chinese art, and more. Go here for more info.
