Chaska dance talks fire-dancing, Samba Fogo, Jewelry-making, and wanting to live. Chaska met with me over Zoom in the social distancing of 2020. I adored speaking with her. We laughed a lot and I learned so much about spinning fire. But everything Chaska and I discussed was a delight for me. I can’t wait to introduce you to her simultaneous dichotomies of earth and fire, life and death, and spectacle and authenticity. She is a masterpiece of a person.
