She studied dance and choreography at the Icelandic Academy of the Arts and in P.A.R.T.S. in Brussels from where she graduated in 2014. In 2015 Rósa received a DanceWeb scholarship to attend Impulstanz. She has made several performances in collaboration with Inga Huld Hákonardóttir, i.e. Radiodance, Wilhelm Scream and The Valley, where they focused especially on ambiguity and the concept of the uncanny valley. With Ásrún Magnúsdóttir and Alexander Roberts, Rósa has been leading a research project focusing on peripheral dance communities and their relation to dance history and the notion of secondhand knowledge. In her new work Rósa continues to investigate the relationship between bodies and sound as well as costumes, fabrics and scenography
