Come to the world’s first Asian American StoryFest!

Eth-Noh-Tec presents two days of seven internationally renown Asian American storytellers on one stage: 5/9 at San Francisco's Mission Cultural Center at 8pm, and 5/10 at the Oakland Asian Cultural Center 1:30, 3:30, 7 panel and 8pm.

Each teller will mesmerize, mystify and delight with the contemporary true stories of Asian America, and folktales and myths of Asia. Stories of monkeys, goddesses, laughing monks, and hunters! Stories of WWII Japanese American soldiers and the American internment camp experience! Stories that will transport you across Asian terrains and tap the ancient in each of us.

Stories enrich our cultural roots and the roots of our humanity. Join us for this amazing journey that will warm your heart and make you proud to be human! No story repeated! Each event is different!

Tellers: Arif Choudhury (NY), Alton Chung (Wash.), Nancy Wang and Robert Kikuchi-Yngojo of Eth-Noh-Tec (SF), Motoko (Mass.), Anne Shimojima (Chicago), and Brenda Wong Aoki (SF).

Eth-Noh-Tec gives special thanks to APICC for selecting them in their own festival, and to the Oakland Asian Cultural Center for support in many ways. Board members also have been great! We also want to thank funders NEA, Zellerbach, SFAC, Rainbow Grocery Collective, Trader Joes, Safeway, and private donors through Indiegogo and FirstGiving. And, we have a special debut of our Young Performer's Ensemble in the festival!! Come one come all!
