Bio:

Rosemary’s stories are related to her own personal & family history here on the West Coast. Her family has a large history here, going back to time immemorial & from the arrival of her old grandfather Scotty Georgeson in the mid 1800’s. This rich and colorful history gives her a lot to pull from. Her work has largely been theatre, performance, and storytelling based. Most of the projects that she has been involved with have started with a question, a missing part of the past, or a person who is not in the archives.
