25/25/25 takes guerrilla art-making to the Main Stage. 25 choreographers who are given 25 minutes each to create a work that is 25 seconds in length, all in front of a live audience, will create 25 works. Conceived and directed by Anne Troake to celebrate 25 years of the Festival of New Dance, 25/25/25 follows her exploration of multi-vocal performance creation.

Anne Troake is a multi-disciplinary artist from Twillingate, Newfoundland. Her practice has its roots in choreography and dance but often utilizes other forms. 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. Her stereoscopic dance film OutSideIn which features Carol Prieur of the Marie Couinard Company and Bill Coleman of Coleman Lemieux & Compagnie has been selected to represent Newfoundland at the 2015 Venice Biennale. She recently completed a Masters degree in Anthropology at Memorial University.
