The Grapevine (Storytelling) 


About Nancy Wang

Nancy Wang began performing in the 1970s as a dancer and choreographer, teaching modern dance as well as creative movement for children. In 1981 she began her partnership with Robert Kikuchi-Yngojo in Filipino traditional music and dance. In 1987, they began their storytelling career focusing on pan-Asian folktales and myths, using stylized movement to create Eth-Noh-Tec’s unique kinetic style of tandem telling. In 1999, she wrote her first personal story and has since focused on family historical stories: Red Altar and Shadows & Secrets.

Renee and her husband, Rabbi/Musician Mark Novak, are the co-founders of the MultiFaith Storytelling Institute, which provides the opportunity for clergy and lay leaders to learn the art of sacred storytelling.
