“Indisputably an electric presence on stage…wins the audience so completely…her performance is unforgettable in every sense.” - New Ottawa Critics

Windy Wynazz is an award-winning variety arts performer (2014 Best SF Comedienne/Bay Area Dance Watch), director, and actor based in the Bay Area. Wynazz is an Artistic Associate with Ragged Wing Ensemble, a physical theatre company located in Oakland, CA. She is a graduate of the Circus Center of San Francisco’s Clown Conservatory (Professional Training Program), and has trained with The San Francisco Mime Troupe, Naked Empire Bouffon, Naked Comedy Lab, Berkeley Repertory School of Theatre, and with Hiroko Tamano in butoh dance. She continues her ongoing training in physical circus skills at the Athletic Playground in Emeryville, California. She received her B.A in Theatre Arts from Rollins College where she focused on directing, and this past summer (15') toured the U.S & Canada with her critically-acclaimed solo show "UnCouth". She is currently in production on the upcoming extravaganza "Windy Wynazz: Rich & Famous" which will begin touring in Spring 16'.
Wynazz's mission is to create provocative theatrical works with extraordinarily high-production value that delight, galvanize, and challenge audiences. Drawing on her training in clown, acrobatics, and physical theatre, she develops original character driven works that are mainly dialogue-free. She uses clown as a vehicle to tell a deeper, more vulnerable story; one that often explores the underbelly of the human condition.
