Mirae Rosner enlivens social and public spaces through performance, interactivity, collectivity and participation. She often works collaboratively and is a member of Dance Troupe Practice. Her solo practice in dance, writing, and video focuses on landscape, economies, intimacy, and inclusivity. Often she approaches these themes through experiential approaches to performance, site-specificity, and participation.
Since graduating from MainDance Contemporary Dance School in 2004, Mirae has interpreted work by choreographers Donna Redlick, Susan Elliot, Anne Cooper, Helen Walkley, Megan O’Shea, and Julie Lebel. She has been a project assistant, performer, and facilitator with Karen Jamieson since 2007, supporting community-based dance in Vancouver's Downtown Eastside. In 2014-15 She worked with Naomi Brand and Sarah Lapp to co-facilitate mixed-ability dance as part of the All Bodies Project.
