Rosa Postlethwaite is an artist from Leicester. She currently lives in Newcastle upon Tyne where she makes and produces live art performance.
Rosa’s performance work is driven by her politics, as a feminist she seeks to acknowledge, respond to and resist the systems of oppression that shape daily life. She plays with recognisable formats like lectures, tannoy announcements or wine-tasting events and stretches them to shake up the taken-for-grantedness of the way things are. Her work, on the boundary of theatre and live art is self-reflexive, biting and funny.
Recently, Rosa co-devised multimedia, theatre work, An Evening with Savvy B with Hannah Walker which toured the North East in 2016. Her performance works, Centre (2014) and The Anatomy Lecture Theatre (2014) were commissioned by international festivals, the Infecting the City Festival and GIPCA Live Art.
Rosa is currently developing, Composed a solo performance about a spokesman [sic] and their institution. She produces and hosts PUG, a quarterly performance club night in Newcastle upon Tyne and regularly performs in cabaret venues in the North East.
