Illuminate 2013…

Richie Hallal is a theatre maker who dedicates his skills as a researcher, writer, director and actor to make new theatre work with a diverse range of communities across Australia.

As a committed Community Cultural Development Practitioner, Richie has had a wild adventure over the past ten years.  He’s worked with over twenty-five communities; from Middle Eastern Youth in Western Sydney to homeless people in Melbourne’s CBD. He’s also worked in the Mornington Peninsula with new migrants, farming communities in outback New South Wales and Tasmania; and on the streets of St Kilda.  Richie brings enormous enthusiasm and joy to his work and as a leader he provides a creative space where community members can come together to share a uniting and energising experience of making and performing theatre.

“I feel like last year was just a taster for what will come this year with Illuminate. I can’t wait to get started on the 2013 project which will bring together young people from across the Wakool Shire to make one epic touring show together,” Richie said.
