PLACE/Is a city written on this body? is a solo evening-length work comprised of three shorter solos, each representing cities with significant professional and personal impact, and each created by a different choreographer.

“I am creating my Napoli (the city from which her parents immigrated to Calgary in the 1960s), Montreal’s Myriam Allard is creating my Calgary (the city in which I was born and raised and practice as an artist), and Barcelona’s Juan Carlos Lérida is creating my Sevilla (a city with significant impact on my flamenco, where I have forged major professional relationships and where I was given the milestone professional opportunity to perform my work at the Bienal de Flamenco in 2014). These three solos each stand on their own as independent works, but also come together to create a full evening-length work.” – Rosanna Terracciano

“Terracciano’s work is daring. It is powerful. It is feminine. It is poetic…The sensitive balance between past and present is written all over her work.” – Myriam Allard, co-Artistic Director of La Otra Orilla (Montreal)

“Terracciano’s work highlights and also offers contrasts of cultural, political and social content that belong to her and to flamenco itself. Through her work, I have come to know a type of flamenco that — reaching us from another corner of the world — walks in unison with contemporary approaches within the dance and movement arts of today.” – Juan Carlos Lérida, Founder of Flamenco Empirico (Barcelona)
