Part of 2020 Connected Virtual Conference & Festival
Our voices tell stories, our bodies tell stories, so why not explore it all? This workshop explores the creativity between words and action, from page to stage, the creation of stories for performance storytelling. Whether a seasoned performer or just getting started, Eth-Noh-Tec will introduce the storytellers into a playful performance tool chest with creative movement, musical and rhythm approaches, drama, and energy dynamics. It’s action-packed, fun-filled with dramatic, musical, and creative movement processes that will help the teller enhance their storytelling impact.
Nancy Wang and Robert Kikuchi-Yngojo, aka Eth-Noh-Tec, conjure a magical blend of mythologies and folk tales in a tandem telling style that interweaves choreography, synchronized dialogue, and drama. Their ancient Asian myths, folktales, and Asian American stories illuminate struggles for social justice and heroic journeys and create enchanting storytelling using body, voice, and gesture.
