Rosana Cade is a Glasgow based artist who mainly works in live performance. Her practice is rooted in a queer feminist discourse and straddles performance, live art, and activism. She is drawn to liveness as a potent site for connection with an 'other', and her work often dances between the joy and difficulty of connecting intimately with others.
She was part of the Spill National Platform and Showcase in 2013, a National Theatre of Scotland and Arches 'Auteur' in 2014, when she also received a Culture2014 commission to travel to India to make a new work. She was an artsadmin artist bursary recipient 2014/15, and artist in residence at the Marlborough Theatre in 2015. Her work has been shown extensively in UK, and she also regularly tours across Europe.
She has an ongoing collaborative practice with her life partner Eilidh MacAskill. In 2017 they were commissioned by Fierce Festival, The Marlborough and The Yard Theatre to create ‘MOOT MOOT’.
She is a co-founder of the radical performance collective //BUZZCUT// who support live art and experimental performance in Glasgow with a strong community focused ethic.
