Shadows & Secrets: The Final Chapter- Who Killed Chin Fan Foin?

The year: 1924. The day: March 29. It is the last day of his life, but Chin F. Foin doesn’t know it. Who knows it? Who wants him dead? Tong wars are at their height. Perhaps the Moy tong wants revenge? Or is it a jealous relative? Chin Foin simply goes about his evening in his famed restaurant preparing for the socialites to dine in atmospheric pleasure and to savor a delicious meal. He hopes the Chicago thunderstorm and a basement filling up with water is not going to keep his customers away. He needs the money. Solve this mystery!


Eth-Noh-Tec is a storytelling theater non-profit founded in 1981 by dancer Nancy Wang and musician Robert Kikuchi-Yngojo. After introducing Southern Philippine Kulintang dance and music in northern California with a company and school, they merged their traditional and contemporary art forms to create their signature tandem-telling style of movement, music and the spoken word performing the ancient tales of Asia and the inspiring stories of Asian America. They perform nationally and internationally in festivals, theater series, schools, museums and more, and performed for the Clinton and Obama inaugural celebrations. They have received the ‘Circle of Excellence’ and ‘International Storybridge’ Awards.


Nancy Wang (Playwright, Lead Performer)
Nancy Wang watched every musical produced by Hollywood on her family’s tiny TV hoping to one day be in one of those musicals or on Broadway. But, alas, in the 50’s, 60s and 70s, there was little to no chance of that for an Asian girl. Still, after graduate school, she found a mentor and began her career as a modern dancer, choreographer and teacher. By 1981, she met Robert Kikuchi-Yngojo. Together they created Eth-Noh-Tec and began their successful foray into the performing world telling the stories of their heritage both as Asians and Americans with music, dance and theater.

Robert Kikuchi-Yngojo (composer)
After pioneering So. Philippine’s Kulintang music and dance movement in northern California, Robert Kikuchi-Yngojo blends his musical talent, movement and the spoken word to write and perform Eth-Noh-Tec’s folktales and myths from throughout Asia. Inspired by world dance theaters and comedic humorists East and West, from Japan to Bali, from martial arts to Gene Kelly, Donald O’Connor and Red Skelton, with dramatic facial gestures to his full body kinetic sensibilities, he breathes dynamism into ENT’s unique style and with his visual arts talents, creates multi-media storytelling performances. Together with his wife, they perform around the world with their award-winning work.
