About Melissa Rose

Hello and Welcome to my page!

I am a professional performance poet, and playwright, and have traveled all around the USA and Europe sharing my poetry. 

For over 15 years I've created pieces of performance art that have tackled the topics of sexual assault, addiction, mental health, and most importantly, the power we all have as human beings to heal, survive and thrive in the face of our pain.

Since an early age I've used creativity as a healing tool and it has been my passion to share this tool with others. Through my academic background in Art Therapy and Transformative Language Arts I deepened my understanding how important and essential community engagement, storytelling and the written/sung/spoken word is to the healing experience.

Last year I completed my first one woman show and have begun to perform it locally in a staged-reading style, but would love to have it produced to its full capacity. This play chronicles my experiences as a spoken word poet in Europe, as well as the realities of my struggles with mental illness. 

With enough support I could work towards generating income for play submissions to festivals and funds to travel to different locations around the world to perform my piece. Increased support would also allow me the freedom to focus on bringing more of my projects into full fruition, including showcases in multiple countries that provide immersive healing experiences for the communities I visit, combining visual arts, performance and poetic storytelling to generate community events that are powerful and transformative for all.

Help me continue to create works of art that invite others to observe, examine and transform their own lives.
Goals
