The Grapevine is spoken word performance for adults and teens, celebrating the timeless art of the story, hosted by storytellers Noa Baum, Renée Brachfeld, and Tim Livengood.
Nancy Wang began performing in the 1970s as a dancer and choreographer, teaching modern dance as well as creative movement for children. In 1981 she began her partnership with Robert Kikuchi-Yngojo in Filipino traditional music and dance. In 1987, they began their storytelling career focusing on pan-Asian folktales and myths, using stylized movement to create Eth-Noh-Tec’s unique kinetic style of tandem telling. In 1999, she wrote her first personal story and has since focused on family historical stories: Red Altar and Shadows & Secrets. More about Nancy at http://www.ethnohtec.org
Renée Brachfeld delights audiences with a unique combination of storytelling and (when in person) with amazing juggling feats. Renée and her husband, Rabbi/Musician Mark Novak, are the co-founders of the MultiFaith Storytelling Institute, which provides the opportunity for clergy and lay leaders to learn the art of sacred storytelling.
