Eth-Noh-Tec

About the Artist

Available January 30 - February 1, 2017

Eth-Noh-Tec is a kinetic storytelling company based in San Francisco that is at once precision choreography, lyrical word-weaving, graceful, playful and poetic. By layering ancient Asian mythologies, folktales and Asian urban legends with Asian American sensibilities, Eth-Noh-Tec has created an exciting new blend of movement-based storytelling.

Teaching Philosophy

Their mission is to build cultural bridges that celebrate our humanity, embrace our differences and create compassionate communities through the performance of Asian and Asian American stories that reveal our universal truths.

"Great mix of music, story, Asian geography. Good crowd control techniques." --3rd grade teacher, Portland private school

Asia FantAsia Less

Why does the Milky Way look like a river of stars? Why do dogs chase cats? How did sea water get so salty? Is there really a Man on the Moon? These questions have sparked the imaginations of families since the beginning of time and have been the source of the metaphors and symbols that make up our folk tales and myths. This all new program of Asian stories is brought to life through the muse of Robert Kikuchi Yngojo of Eth-Noh-Tec, 1999 National Young Audiences Artist of the Year. His comic faces, graceful full-body gestures and vocal sound effects breathe life into the folk characters of Asia, including Pilandok, the Filipino trickster, the Heavenly Jade Emperor of China, or wise Judge Rabbit of Cambodia. Through these tales children learn core values of kindness to others, honesty, love for all living things, and how to open their hearts and minds to cultures different than their own.
