Dragon Tales: Chinese tales and myths come alive upon the stage!
Eth-Noh-Tec performers Robert Kikuchi-Yngojo and Nancy have performed stories for adults and children alike nationally and internationally. Nancy and Robert weave music, dance, rhythmic dialogue, lively facial expressions and the spoken word to inspire the imagination and to bring their stories alive.
Eth-Noh-Tec works to bridge cultural gaps while addressing a worldwide humanity that is important to us all. They have performed for both President Clinton's and President Obama's Inauguration Celebration and appeared at the Smithsonian, on NPR's "All Things Considered" and on Public Broadcast Television. They've been featured numerous times in the prestigious National Storytelling Festival in Jonesborough, TN. Eth-Noh-Tec has also appeared on such notable international stages as International Storytelling Festivals in Manila, Singapore, Tales of Graz, Austria.
Eth-Noh-Tec on Community: We appeal to a wide range of diverse communities. Our stories draw from an enormous repertoire of tales, myths, anecdotes, cultures from BOTH the Asian AND Asian American world. We have a strength in Family audiences (school age and parents). The mythological, spiritual, and social-political satires appeal to older teens and adults. The breadth of Pan Asian content (China, Korea, Japan, Philippines, Southeast Asia) AND the Asian American style of presentation, along with the fact that we can frame the ancient tales with modern relevancy makes it appealing to mature, educated audiences, many of whom have traveled, been exposed to diverse American and International communities and nurtured multiculturally aesthetics. Humor, wit, and an interactive rapport with the audience give Eth-Noh-Tec a broad appeal.
