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 (were thinking maybe jazz saxophone is next for her), Wises What Just Happened? is a one-woman retelling of yesterday. As in, if someone asked you, What happened yesterday? you might say, Nothing. But Wise brings her highly physical style and compassionate observations to nothing, and all of a sudden, What Just Happened? is something interesting.
