Characterized by a calculated chaos of comedy, high-energy kung-faux fighting, and irreverent pop-culture parodies, NANDA has been presenting original action-packed, theater-based shows since 2004. Their performances are a mishmash of traditional theater, vaudeville, and circus. They utilize dance, juggling, and acrobatics in a form they call acrobaticalism. The four performing members of NANDA grew up together in Pt. Townsend, Washington and developed a vision of limitless creative play that has become the essence of their performance art. Their explode-out-of-the-box mentality has inspired extensive explorations into a variety of other avenues, including live video projection, animation and sound, and consultations for corporations. No matter where or for whom they perform, NANDA always creates an amazingly lively and humorous sensory experience. NANDA is: Misha Fradin, Chen Pollina, Kiyota Sage, and Tomoki Sage.
