Brienna Macnish

Brienna Macnish is a theatre maker based in Melbourne, whose work sometimes looks more like live art than theatre. Her practice is characterised by an interest in non-traditional forms, a thoughtful engagement with site, striking visual aesthetics and social relevance. Recently Brienna has developed new Australian writing, created immersive performances and designed participatory installations. In 2012 Brienna directed Tuesday by Louris van der Geer for MKA, The Hide with Mattie Young for the Melbourne Fringe Festival and currently serves on the National Steering Committee for Young People and the Arts Australia.
