I admit I didn’t know much about Karla Singh until I met her at Raell Padamsee’s place when ‘Pearl’s Gang’ was rehearsing for a tribute show almost exactly two years ago. She seemed like a real fun person, with a great sense of humour so I assumed she must be an actor. Only later in the evening I figured that she was there as a dancer-choreographer, like she’d been there for many of Pearl’s productions. Karla’s sense of humour was even more evident when I met her last year at the final rehearsal of One Out Of Six. She was on a roll with Bugs Bhargava, Cyrus Broacha and Kunal Vijaykar. The anecdotes the four of them recalled ought to have been recorded but they probably would offend too many people. I loved the mad energy of that backstage.
The note for Karla’s workshop at NCPA’s Summer Fiesta — DANCE & MOVEMENT — doesn’t say much but knowing her I’m sure it’ll be loads of fun. That is why, the need for the time machine to make me a 6-year-old.
