Rosanna Irvine is an artist and choreographer working in performance, installation, digital media and writing – including written choreographic scores. Her work is presented in theatre, gallery and public spaces as well as on the page and online. Rosanna’s approach involves working with relational and material processes through specific qualities of attention and perception. This is informed by her early dance training at School for New Dance Development Amsterdam and her long history of mind-body practices – including Ki-Aikido, Shiatsu and Yoga. She works independently and in collaboration with choreographer Katrina Brown. Recent work has been presented nationally and internationally, including at Nottdance Festival Nottingham, Tramway Glasgow, Het Veem Theatre, Amsterdam; KARST Gallery, Plymouth; Konteksty International Festival of Ephemeral Art, Sokolovsko, Poland; Siobhan Davies Studio, London; Nightingale Theatre, Brighton; Art Claims Impulse Gallery, Berlin.
During the residency Rosanna will work on her new project Breath Pieces, a flexible hybrid art work. Breath Pieces works with the material and energetic qualities of breath in the development of multiple pieces.
