Writer / Director

Brian Richardson
Brian Richardson is a theatre practitioner. As an actor, a playwright, a poet, a storyteller, folk musician, and a creator of ethno-fusion theatre he has experienced a wide range of performance experience. Brian also applies his craft in a field broadly categorised as Museum Theatre. The centre of that network is a very dedicated woman, Tessa Bridal, whose work in the Science Museum of Minnesota began the connecting theatre artists working in the fields of re-enactment, recreation, and education, to exchange and share ideas in a commonality. The work Brian does with Green Kids stems from that commonality as well as many years in theatre, and a number of years with Green Kids.
