Production DetailsStrong Like Bamboo: Stories of Resilience for Healing in this Era of Anti-AAPI Violence
For one and half hours, stories, film and discussion will help heal our communities and give an experience that confirms we are not alone in our quest for respect, justice, peace and safety. Using the art of storytelling and music to engage our audience, Eth-Noh-Tec's goal is to provide a safe and inspiring space for deep and reassuring dialogue. When we share our stories, we become a community. It is in our communities that we find solace, support and strength. Eth-Noh-Tec also hopes to create allies of compassion. Together we can make a difference in this era of anti-AAPI hate.Eth-Noh-Tec and Storytelling Friends

Two of their most proud moments was performing in the presidential inaugural celebrations in DC for Clinton and then Obama. They have received awards for their artistic presentation of ancient folktales and myths, as well as for contemporary and inspiring Asian American stories, as well as other projects whose goals are to celebrate diversity and create compassionate communities.
