Drawing on her experience as an Arts organisation employee, Rosa examines the relationship between a spokesperson and their institution. Taking on familiar roles, she performs an in-house announcement, a thank-you to the sponsors, a warm-up act…

Composed is an investigation into social convention and contained fury. A high octane show dealing with apologetic addresses, revved-up entrepreneurial spiel and whether or not you are asking for it.
