Rósa Ómarsdóttir (Iceland) is a choreographer based in Brussels. She studied dance and choreography at the Icelandic Academy of the Arts and at P.A.R.T.S. (Brussels), where she graduated in 2014. Together with Inga Huld Hákonardóttir she has created Wilhelm Scream (2014), The Valley (2015, Icelandic Theatre Award for Choreography of the Year), and Da Da Dans (2016), a production for the Icelandic Dance Company, celebrating the 100 year anniversary of the dada movement. In their work they investigate the relationship between sound and movements, with a special focus on ambiguity and the concept of the uncanny valley. In her latest work, Traces (2017), Rósa continues to investigate the relationship between bodies and sound as well as costumes, fabrics and scenography, creating an immersive installation performance in which a magical, dynamic and ever-changing landscape evolves all around the audience. Rósa has also been leading a research project called Secondhand Knowledge, with Ásrún Magnúsdóttir and Alexander Roberts, focusing on peripheral dance communities and their relation to dance history and the notion of secondhand knowledge. The first edition focused on the periphery of Europe and in later versions of the project she will visit other continents as well.
