She has previously taught in multiple colleges and universities the US, including the University of California Riverside, Tufts University, Reed College, and Florida State University Tallahassee. She was also a research fellow at Freie Universität Berlin’s International Research Center “Interweaving Performance Cultures” (Germany, 2012-13). She earned her PhD from the University of California, Los Angeles.
Rosa’s area of interest includes dance in the Americas and the African diaspora, idenity politics, as well as colonial and postcolonial issues in dance such as embodied knowledge production and dissemination. Since 2016, Rosa has embarked on a new research project which explores, in a broad sense, the relationship across moving bodies, ecology and sustainability.
In her book Brazilian Bodies and Their Choreographies of Identification (Palgrave McMillan, 2015), for example, Rosa examines how aesthetic principles cultivated across the black Atlantic contributed to the construction of Brazil as an imagined community. She has also been published in the edited books The Routledge Companion to Performance Philosophy (2020), Moving (Across) Borders (2017), Performing Brazil (2015) and Cultures in Process: Encounter and Experience (2009), and peer reviewed journals such as Atlantic Studies, TDR and e-misférica. Her lectures are featured in digital plataforms such as Digital Theatre.
