Asylum of Spoons


Gemini nominated co-directors Allen Kaeja and Mark Adam bring you their passionate dance film, Asylum of Spoons. Award winning choreographer Kaeja articulates a chilling and evocative turn-of-the-century dance narrative that chronicles the extraordinary dynamics, impulsive acts, unspoken desires and gripping love of a truly eccentric family.

Allen Kaeja’s Asylum of Spoons is brilliantly creepy. It never flinched from the darkest lusts and cruelties, and the dancers saturated each gesture with passion. They (the 2000 spoons)…..gave the entire piece a knife-edge brilliance of movement. Ottawa Citizen Stage performance, CDF 2004
