What Just Happened?  | Open: 04/24/14 Close: 04/24/14
Nina Wise's WHAT JUST HAPPENED? is an improvisational performance based on personal and political events which have transpired over the previous twenty-four hours. Wise's autobiographical performances, known for their warmth and compassion, weave irony, physicality and insight into complex, spontaneous narratives. Her work, which has been compared to a cross between Lily Tomlin, the Dalai Lama and Jules Feiffer, is at once full of humor and poignancy. No two performances are ever the same--

"Wise is a metaphysical vaudevillian for the new millennium" - Bob Morris, N.Y. Times columnist

"Lovingkindness abounds in her work. She makes art as fresh as the day's headlines."
- Village Voice

NINA WISE is known for her provocative and original performance works. Her pieces have garnered seven Bay Area Critics' Circle Awards, and she has received, among other prestigious honors, three National Endowment for the Arts fellowships. She is the founder of Motion Theater a transformative improvisation practice, and tours and teaches at varied venues nationwide. She is the author of A Big New Free Happy Unusual Life: Self Expression and Spiritual Practice for Those Who Have Time for Neither.
