A pair of mammals moves through a boreal forest in Newfoundland.  Species: human.  

An arresting experiment in 3D cinema, OutSideIn ventures into the woods to reconsider our entangled primordial relationship with the natural world.  Reframing the human presence within nature, filmmaker and choreographer Anne Troake reveals a sublime and unsettling new universe.  A treetop canopy soars like a vertiginous cathedral of light. Roots rise like a great waking bear.  The magnified human eye is recast as a vast liquid landscape.

In a stereoscopic vision both intimate and monumental, Troake investigates ideas of wilderness and culture, drawing from a lively tradition of in situ art practice while recalling the rich history of nude and landscape artwork.  Her collaborators are two extraordinary performers: Carol Prieur (La Compagnie Marie Chouinard) and Bill Coleman, who first introduced the idea of making a 3D film to Troake.

Over five years in the making, OutSideIn began with Troake’s introduction to the “deep sensing” work Coleman has been doing in the studio, in natural environments and recently at McMaster University’s LiveLab, a research facility designed to investigate the physiological experiences of performers and spectators.  Observing dancers Coleman and Prieur in the studio, Troake became fascinated with what she couldn’t see—with the micro-movement going on inside the body and barely visible from the outside…unless you get very, very close…
