Pamela was born in Australia and originally studied philosophy at the University of Sydney and the University of New South Wales. She created her first (live) oral performance in 1998 titled, ‘China: another point of view’ and moved to England in 2001. She is currently developing new works looking at aspects of migration, death, rape, gender, dyslexia and the elderly to be performed as podcasts (audio). Pamela lives in North London.
“The oral form creates a very particular construct of meaning. As distinct from a text written to be read, in the oral an extra dimension of meaning is captured. It’s at the moment of expression that sense or meaning is made of what we say.” – Pamela Neil
