The Body in Nature

Anne Troake's OutsideIn
Carol Prieur in Troake's film OutsideIn

 

OutsideIn is a stereoscopic dance film created by Anne Troake, featuring Carol Prieur of Compagnie Marie Choiunard and Bill Coleman of Coleman, Lemieux & Compagnie. The film was selected to represent Newfoundland at the 2015 Venice Biennale and is being screened at the National Arts Centre on July 15th and 16th, 2017, by the Canada Dance Festival. 

Troake is a prolific multidisciplinary filmmaker who experiments with 3D dance film. Originally from Twillingate, Newfoundland, her practice is rooted in choreography and dance. Troake’s short film Pretty Big Dig won The CGI Jury Prize at Montreal’s Festival International du Film sur L’Art and, in 2005, she completed an ethnographic documentary My Ancestors Were Rogues and Murderers for the National Film Board of Canada - a feature that explores the debate on Canada’s seal hunt. The experience of creating this film inspired Troake to deepen her research and exploration of the human body’s relationship to nature as manifested in physicality, morality and beliefs.
