Come to the first ever – Asian American StoryFest! Our Asian stories, like the ancient stories of all cultures, are 1000′s of years old and still valid in contemporary society. Witness the power of storytelling through the inherent values, messages, metaphors, humor, and the poignancy of stories – and in a live setting!
LISTENING TO LANDSCAPES EAST & WEST!
Hear the humor and pathos of Arif Choudhury; the heroic WWII Japanese American soldier stories, and tales from Hawaii from Alton Takiyama Chung; pan Asian tales and myths through movement, music and the spoken word from Nancy Wang and Robert Kikuchi-Yngojo of Eth-Noh-Tec; tales of humor and delicacy told with Motoko’s words and mime movements; the various Asian tales impeccably told by Anne Shimojima; and the fantastical Asian world tales of Brenda Wong-Aoki.
