Dramaturgy / Directing

Nina works one-on-one with performers in the creation of their original works. She consults on scripts from seed concept to final production. Nina also directs, helping performers incorporate movement into their delivery style and interact creatively with set elements and props.


“I’d been working on my show for 2 years before meeting Nina. It had fun stories but lacked clarity, direction and depth. During our sessions, Nina knew exactly what questions to ask. She kept me on track by developing a consistent theme from beginning to end. She has a skill of focussing on the details as well as the bigger picture. The script Nina helped me write supports me in a natural, effortless way.

Before working with Nina I felt like I was putting on a show. Now I feel connected with the audience as they travel with me and experience a wide range of emotions. Since working with Nina, my show has won Best of Fringe in Grass Valley, CA and is getting word-of- mouth advertising from a multitude of audience members as well as the attention of the press.

If you’re developing a one-person show and looking for someone to help you write a powerful script and move well on stage, I highly recommend Nina Wise.”
