Threes Anna (pseudonym of Threes Schreurs, born in Vlaardingen, The Netherlands, 1959) is a novelist, theatre and film maker.

Biography

Threes Anna is trained as a visual artist. In 1985 Anna was engaged in theatre company Dogtroep, specialized in site specific theatre. In 1989 she becomes artistic leader of the company. Under her leadership Dogtroep creates over fifty performances all over the world. The performances develop into big visual spectacles with an international cast. Owing to the extent and complexity of the shows, she doesn’t perform herself form 1993 onwards, and concentrates on script writing and directing. Apart from her theatre work she creates and produces documentaries about several artists and Dogtroep. After a tragic accident (1998), in which her partner and colleague Marco Biagioni dies, Threes Anna stops with Dogtroep and begins to develop feature films and writing novels.

Since 2003 Threes Anna has published four novels, De kus van de weduwe ('The Widow’s Kiss'), Motormoeder ('Motor Mother'), De stille stad ('The Silent City') and Vogel kan niet vliegen ('The Bird Can’t Fly', after her first feature film). Motormoeder has been the first Dutch novel to be downloaded and read on mobile phone.

In 2007 Threes Anna’s feature film debut, The Bird Can’t Fly is released on the international market, an English spoken full length movie, that she wrote, directed and co-produced. The American actress Barbara Hershey has the leading role, the rest of the cast and crew is south-african. The movie was first shown on the San Sebastian International Film Festival, won the Filmprijs van de stad Utrecht (Prize of Utrecht for the best movie debut) during the Nederlands Filmfestival 2007, as well as the Stimulans voor Succes Prijs for the most successful films in artistic and commercial ways, as presented by the Nederlands Filmfonds (Dutch Film Fund). On the Sofia Film Festival 2008 the film won the Jury's Special Award for "having created a singular and magical world".

Currently, while The Bird Can't Fly is shown at festivals all over the world, Threes Anna is working on her next movie The Silent City and doing research for her fifth novel in India.
