Pamela Neil was born in Sydney, Australia and originally studied philosophy at the University of Sydney and the University of New South Wales. She created her first 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, colonising space, sexuality and mental health – some of which will be performed as audio podcasts. Pamela lives in North London.
“The oral form creates a very particular construct of meaning,” explains Pamela. “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.”
