Eth-No-Tec - Storytelling

Four Seasons Lodge at Koele - The Great Hall - Sunday, October 21, 3 pm

Eth-No-Tec performed in the Great Hall. They quickly developed a rapport with and won over the audience with great storytelling that featured strong stage presence, intricate moves and timing between the duo and really great tales that ranged from an opening fun and light piece to a moving tale about Robert’s mother’s immigration to the USA, a hilarious piece centered on a married couple that had the audience openly laughing. They closed with a dramatic and really powerful and fun ghost story that fully enraptured and won over the audience.
