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.

Eth-Noh-Tec was founded in 1982 and is the combined performance chemistry of Robert Kikuchi-Yngojo and Nancy Wang. See Artists’ Bios for more information.

Our Mission

To heal the divides between us and among us through stories.  We 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.

What We Do

Eth-Noh-Tec performs throughout the United States and abroad with several storytelling programs, workshops and residencies. Together they mix an alchemy of music, drama, dance and the spoken word to challenge the borders between movement, mime and storytelling. More information at Performance Programs and About Eth-Noh-Tec.

Eth-Noh-Tec is funded in part by the Asian American Women Artists Association, The California Endowment, National Endowment for the Arts, National Storytelling Network, San Francisco Arts Commission, Zellerbach Family Foundation, and private donors.
