Through an extensive career in film production and videography, Kayla has captured performances by companies such as Cirque du Soleil, Winnipeg’s Contemporary Dancers, Le Monastère Cabaret du Cirque, Toronto Dance Theatre, and Montréal Danse. She was hired in 2019 as video documentalist for Cirque du Soleil to assist the creation teams of Alegria, Axel, and Drawn to Life. Her strengths lie in capturing movement in a way that accentuates its energy and editing with a strong sense of emotional and rhythmic pacing.
Kayla’s approach to filming as a dancer has allowed her to find interesting ways to incorporate video into live performance. As live camera operator and producer of video for projection, Kayla has collaborated with artists including Luca “Lazylegz” Patuelli, Silvia Gertrúdix González, Abadi Al-Obaidi, Peter Quanz, Ming Hon, Danielle Sturk, Meghan Athavale, and Stephanie Ballard.
