“Asia FantAsia” as performed by Robert Kikuchi-Yngojo of Eth-Noh-Tec presents a fun filled storytelling adventure of drama through his lively storytelling style. With lyrical word-weaving, graceful, playful and full-body gesture, Robert brings alive ancient Asian mythologies and folktales with fresh, to times humorous Asian American sensibilities. Trickster tales of clever rabbits (Cambodia), origin myths “Why the sea is Salty” (Korea), humors stories of comeuppance “Phrayas Pride” (Thailand) and some many more stories will delight young audiences. He embellishes his storytelling with music of bamboo instruments from Japan, China, Philippines and so much more!

Robert Kikuchi-Yngojo is part of the dynamic duo, Eth-Noh-Tec, a kinetic storytelling company based in San Francisco.  Founding member of Eth-Noh-Tec, Robert travels to Massachusetts each Spring to perform “Asia FantAsia” for school assemblies, libraries and community centers. Robert has trained and performed in traditional and contemporary art forms for over four decades.
