What Just Happened
A Performance by NINA WISE
Guest appearance by ANNA HALPRIN
and Motion Theater Artists Annabelle Berrios,
Davida Taurek, Ishiah Benben, Marianna Seger & Rob Pavey
In her signature style, Nina Wise builds an improvised performance based on the personal and political events that have transpired over the previous 24 hours. Wise's Autobiographical performances, known for their warmth and compassion, weave irony, physicality and insight into complex, spontaneous and very funny narratives.
Renowned dancer Anna Halprin will perform The Courtesan and the Crone
and five Motion Theater Artists will weave spontaneous performances based on their past 24 hours.
"You leave a Nina Wise performance uplifted, as if you've seen something fresh, moving and above all, deeply human." - Ashland Tribune
