Wise Women

A Celebration of Wisdom in Our Lives and in Our Selves

In "Wise Women," Eth-Noh-Tec’s stories invite us to reflect on the wisdom offered by our ancestors, appreciated at the time or not, and dip into our own well of wisdom gathered over the years, known or yet to be discovered.

This gathering will weave together performances of true and traditional tales that hope to be springboards into shared conversations exploring, discovering and acknowledging the wisdom within us and between us. Join us!

Eth-Noh-Tec will perform their unique style of kinetic storytelling of three stories featuring women - one Asian American personal story and two ancient Asian folktales - that will help us look at our past, how that past can be useful in the present and how we can imagine our future given the gifts we've inherited from those before us. What has the past generation left us? Are we repeating patterns that help or hinder? What do we need to create the future we want?

Stories are a powerful medium with which to go deep and take us into another space. Stories can reach into our souls and help us learn about ourselves and about our world. Stories help us discover life's big and small gifts we might have overlooked. Our stories will enlighten and engage hearts and minds to encourage new insights.
