ROSANNA TERRACCIANO   |   flamenco, dance, contemporary performance, short film
I experiment within and around the boundaries of flamenco, dance, contemporary performance and short film, driven by an urgency to expose the vulnerable and introverted aspects of flamenco dance. Mostly, I create to satisfy my relentless search for all things beautiful.

2020-2022 Associate Artist at Calgary's Dancers' Studio West

Recipient of the 2017 Jacqueline Lemieux Prize for dance from the Canada Council for the Arts

"(Rosanna's) work highlights and also offers contrasts of cultural, political and social content that belong to her and to flamenco itself. Through her work, I have come to know a type of flamenco that — reaching us from another corner of the world — walks in unison with contemporary approaches within the dance and movement arts of today."
