Transcending Creative Boundaries with Nina Hart

Nina Hart

Nina Hart is a writer, dancer, stand-up comedian, and improv artist who is also a fellow Kaizen-Muse Creativity Coach. Her first collection of surreal short fictions called Somewhere in a Town You Never Knew Existed Somewhere was selected as a Short Stories (Adult Fiction) category finalist in Foreword Reviews’ 2014 IndieFab Book of the Year Awards. Nina was also an original member of the experimental dance troupe Contraband, in San Francisco and, playing a purple electric bass, has recorded and performed with numerous bands. 

Nina joined me to talk about everything from stage fright and vulnerability to how we teach vs. how we should teach to the inner critic and just what “good” means, if anything. (Spoiler: We’re not convinced it means much!) Like my interview with Dawn Kotzer, there’s a lot to take in here. I’d love to hear your thoughts over on Instagram.

If we think there’s only one kind of intelligence, we push out—I swear—99 percent of human beings and human potential.
