The Artistic Director of Anima Productions, Julie Troost creates concept-driven work in modern dance, experimental theater, and social practice art, and video. She has a profound interest in portraying the intangible, yet her work is firmly rooted in the body. Julie sculpts human experience onstage and imbues daily life with site-specific work and public participation. She examines humanity’s relationship to faith, family, death, location, memory, and loss. Conscious of its political, environmental and social relevance, Julie’s work inspires dialogue essential to promoting a compassionate and healthy society.
