Rosie Macari has landed a job with Motionhouse and we couldn’t be prouder!
Rosie was part of our Centre for Advanced Training, has been a fantastic member of our Ticket Office team and is an active part of our professional artist community.
“Being based in the North East for the past few years I have been able to keep up my training at Dance City with the free professional classes that are offered here every week day. The community of artists here are brilliant, it’s such a supportive atmosphere and has led to collaborations with other north east artists. I am beyond grateful to a lot of individuals – Patricia Stead, Creative Producer and head of the professional artists and programmes within Dance City, the entire CAT team and the ladies of the ticket office for their continued support. I am very excited to start rehearsals with Motionhouse for BLOCK.”
Originally from Newcastle, Rosie started her training at the Centre for Advanced Training then completed a First Class BA Hons at TrinityLaban Conservatoire of Music and Dance. Whilst training Rosie worked with choreographers such as Richard Alston, Gary Lambert and Charles Linehan.
Since graduating Rosie has worked with a variety of choreographers (Southpaw, Lo-Guidance Dance, Jennifer Essex Dance, Neville Campbell, Chantry Dance, State of Grace and Kelly-Abbott Dance Theatre), as well as on her own projects. Her performance experience ranges from stage theatre productions, music videos, dance films, to her main love – sight specific outdoor festivals.
She collaborated with Francesca Mcloughlin in 2015 on a production titled ‘Talk to the Waves’, which was chosen to be performed in the annual Texas Grand Slam poetry event in Houston Texas as the guest performance.
Rosie also enjoys teaching others and has taught various outreach groups within local community’s, ranging from tailored classes for elderly people to young children, as well as local schools. Most recently Rosie has been teaching as part of Dance City’s CAT scheme.
BLOCK is an outdoor dance circus fusion with NoFit State Circus. Twenty oversized blocks are deconstructed and reformed into an infinite variety of shapes for the performers to play on, move with and explore. BLOCK is about life in the city; its contradictions and challenges. The tour starts in April nationally and internationally. Keep an eye out for dates near the North East in July!
