From Our Archives: Bonnie Kim Reflects on Dancing in Jean-Pierre Perreault’s JOE

By Bonnie Kim

Digidance, in collaboration with the Fondation Jean-Pierre Perreault, presents Perreault’s JOE online March 17 through 23. The work was originally created in 1984, and the filmed version that audiences will see this week was produced in 1995 by Radio-Canada. This article, by JOE dancer Bonnie Kim about her experience dancing in the work, was originally published in the May 2004 issue of The Dance Current.

Tension, Humour and a Whole Lotta Flatwear: Allen Kaeja’s Asylum of Spoons By Bonnie Kim

Two years in development, Allen Kaeja’s new work Asylum of Spoons really found its feet when he impulsively brought a bunch of spoons to rehearsal. By the time the work premiered at the Canada Dance Festival in June 2004, the number of spoons had grown to 2,000. Following its stage life, the work – which explores darkness, tension and humour in family dynamics – will become another Kaeja d’Dance film.
