In 2006 the Coleman Lemieux Compagnie collaborated with the community of Cow Head to create an on-site dance work celebrating the land and sea and people in the Gros Morne region. The event was captured by filmmaker Anne Troake.
Feel the Earth Move: the Gros Morne Project, documents the dance company’s cultural exchange with the people of Cow Head and the spectacular one-of-a-kind performance at Green Point, Gros Morne National Park. Along with other examples of Troake’s films, Feel the Earth Move is available to view on Vimeo:
Anne Troake works as a choreographer, filmmaker, costume and graphic designer as well as a performer in dance, theatre and comedy. Her films include the quirky Pretty Big Dig (2003), a short film featuring a choreographed dance of steam shovels, and the documentary exploring her family connection to Newfoundland’s seal hunt, My Ancestors Were Rogues and Murderers (2005).
