Richa writes, organizes, performs, shares, and builds in whatever languages, genres, and modes of learning are available to her. She has studied and worked in the US since 1989, but feels most alive when she is immersed in the everyday Urdu, Hindi, and Awadhi that she grew up with in Old Lucknow. An anti-disciplinary border-crosser, she believes in agitating stabilized ways of knowing and telling through collective creativity. Richa has learned from, and grown with, her colleagues-students-teachers at the University of Minnesota-Twin Cities, where she has been a faculty member since 1997. She has worked intimately with the Sangtin Kisan Mazdoor Sangathan and Parakh Theatre since their founding in the mid-2000s. To read more, click here.
