Informed by her experience and her fascination with admission, Kayla created performances to engage the public in meaningful (often unspoken) dialogue around themes that are common to us all--sex, shame, longing, and connection. For the past two years she collected confessions through Confession Box (2015-2016) and A Bare Witness (2016), performances where public space became an interactive confessional--she exposed her own sexuality/vulnerability, allowing others to expose theirs.
Kayla has used these stories to create her latest multimedia performance installation, Confession Room. You will experience the most intimate of disclosures, because everyone has a story they don’t want to tell.
