The Grimm Troupe Overview

The Grimm Troupe is considered as an extra chapter and a quest that introduces a threatening group of bugs that appear in Dirtmouth who wants to perform a ritual. This will leave you with the decision of helping the Troupe complete the ritual and to learn more about the menacing group or choosing to banish them out of town.

Now, in order to start this quest, you will need to summon them to the town. To do that, make your way to the Howling Cliffs and through two breakable walls that leads into a tight passage with unlit torches. At the end of the passage, you will see a body of a large bug where you will need to use the Dream Nail to unlock a dialogue and will cause the screen to flash the color red - retrace your steps where the previous area will have a huge torch with a glowing canister will appear.
