ABOUT ROSE

2021-06-30 - Rose Kanj5481-v2 1(3).jpg

Rose Kanj is a Brooklyn-based actress and vocalist. Her love of storytelling began when she was a young girl, listening to the voices of some of her greatest influences: Aretha Franklin, Barbara Streisand, and Etta James, just to name a few. Hearing every high and low, hint of pain, and sound of a smile in their voices were her first lessons in performance and ultimately motivated her to earning her BA in Music (voice) with a minor in Drama from Berklee College of Music. After that, she found herself among a community of fellow artists that were creating and producing new works. The stories she was telling through these original plays and musicals were so inspiring and fueled her passion even more.

 

Her constant love of learning and growing led her to further her arts education and in May 2021 she earned her MFA in Acting from the Actors Studio Drama School and she is currently a finalist at The Actors Studio. Knowing the importance of listening, play, and collaboration in the performing arts has also encouraged Rose to complete the comedy improv curriculum at the Upright Citizens Brigade. Rose brings specificity, vulnerability, and joy to every role she plays, constantly living in the moment with the characters she embodies. She hopes to continue the tradition of storytelling.
