More about Red Altar
Hundreds of Chinese communities dotted the West Coast for decades staring in 1849. They came to make a better life and helped build America. In one small coastal area along the Carmel Bay, six teens survived their junk boat crash and started the fishing industry. What happened to them?…
Eth-Noh-Tec, with performers Nancy Wang and Robert Kikuchi-Yngojo, use their dramatic alchemy to conjure rhythmic, lyrical storytelling embellished with seamless interlocking physical theater and choreography as they blend ancient wisdom and modern messages.
Eth-Noh-Tec has performed on such notable stages as the Smithsonian Discovery Theater, Wolftrap VA, Presidential Inaugural Celebrations for both Pres. Clinton and Pres. Obama, and at the prestigious National Storytelling Festival in Jonesborough TN. Eth-Noh-Tec has also been featured on international storytelling events, festivals and delegations in India, China, Philippines, Singapore, Japan and Bermuda. They have been initiated into the Circle of Excellence by the National Storytelling Network. Their work has also appeared on NPR’s “All Things Considered” and “Short Stories, Tall Tales” on PBS.
