Anne Troake

Multidisciplinary Artist

Anne Troake is a multi-disciplinary artist from Twillingate, Newfoundland. Her practice has its roots in choreography and dance but often utilizes filmmaking. Troake’s short film Pretty Big Dig won The CGI Jury Prize at Montreal's Festival International du Film sur L'Art. Her work has been shown at The Canada Dance Festival, the Soho 20 Gallery (NYC), Artist's Television Access (San Francisco), the Lincoln Center's Dance on Camera Festival, the Kennedy Center, and the Goethe Institute. In 2005, Troake completed her ethnographic documentary My Ancestors Were Rogues and Murderers for the National Film Board of Canada, which garnered rave reviews by the public and press across Canada and launched Ms. Troake into research and exploration of the human body’s relationship to nature as manifested in physicality, morality and beliefs. She is currently completing a Masters degree in Anthropology at Memorial University.
