(I must have posted about her on the old MF: https://www.kaylafarrish.com)

I had never been to the theater in the basement of the Guggenheim (and it has creepy sloping floors). There tonight for Kayla workshopping her “Put the Fire Away, dear” show with excerpts and a panel discussion.

I saw a version of the show at La Mama last year and it seemed polished and finished, but her process involves, I guess, tinkering while seeking funding. And the cast has changed. A final (?) version debuts in San Francisco in March. Wrong coast.

I would go and see her anywhere doing anything. What a dancer. The panel was the first time I’ve heard her answer questions at length, and sitting in a chair she spontaneously can’t resist half dancing her answers. You have to see it. She’s very special.

Okay, I should go to SF for my birthday, right?

And that was good too. One of her older pieces featuring about 20 minutes of high-paced expressive movement, with her wonderful take on “All the Things You Are” along the way.
