Drawing from improvisational traditions of many kinds, Nina Wise is just the person to cook up a compelling stage show out of what many people would call “nothing.” Using contact improv dance, comedy, spoken word, and on-the-spot dramatic storytelling (we’re thinking maybe jazz saxophone is next for her), Wise’s What Just Happened? is a one-woman retelling of yesterday.

Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
