First Gig with Circus Oz: Dandenong 2017
Rose spent most of her younger years along the rural west coast of Ireland, regularly traveling between Australia and Ireland. She developed a passion for music and performed as a singersongwriter for a number of years. At 15, she decided to make Australia a permanent home where she hoped to connect with and understand her indigenous culture and family. She then found herself in Melbourne at The Victorian College Of The Arts studying a Bachelor of Fine Art. During her studies, she discovered circus and was inspired by its physicality.While working the Edinburgh Fringe, she was invited to take part in the 2016 Circus Oz BLAKflip program. Now located in Melbourne permanently, Rose aims to apply her multidisciplinary experience to Circus Oz and its distinctly Australian approach to circus.
