A Motion Theater Workshop with Nina Wise

Sunday, January 11 9:30-1:30

Oak Street Dance Studio

Motion Theater--- a form of improvised, autobiographical theater that is grounded in a lively physicality--- is both an art form and a spiritual practice.

This workshop will include meditation, gentle and vigorous movement, opening the voice, and original theater games based on the stories of our everyday lives. The work (described by students as remarkably fun and oddly addictive) elicits presence and authenticity as we drop into our innate state of freedom.

Expect to surprise yourself, to become more playful and at ease before an audience, and to leave with an enhanced sense of well-being in both your personal and creative lives.

Nina Wise

Since earning her degree in Religious Studies and the Aesthetics of Movement from UCSC, Nina Wise has devoted her career to creating performances that addresses the complex relationship between body, mind and spirit. She is the founder of Motion Theater ® a transformative improvisation practice. She also creates scripted works and is the recipient of three NEA fellowships, three Marin Arts Council fellowships and her theater pieces have received seven Bay Area Theater Critics' Circle Awards. Described by a New York Times columnist as a metaphysical vaudevillian for the new millennium, she has performed original work in theaters, at international conferences, think tanks and the like. She teaches at Spirit Rock Meditation Center, Esalen Institue and has taught at UC Santa Cruz, Stanford University and SF State. . Her book, A Big New Free Happy Unusual Life, was published by Broadway Books in 2002 and her stories and articles have been published in numerous anthologies and journals.

A workshop with Nina Wise changes your life in all the right ways towards creativity, connection, and the wisdom of the universe. But the main reason I recommend it is because what she does is also So Much Fun
