Emotional, intelligent, tongue-in-cheek theatre
Telia Nevile is a writer, performer and photographer who loves long-form language, dance movies and playlists that shift from Jay Z to Megadeth and back again. Her latest solo show, ‘Poet Vs Pageant’, won the 2015 Melbourne Fringe Best Emerging Writer award before going on to seasons at the 2016 Adelaide Fringe, the 2017 Castlemaine State Festival and the 2017 St-Ambroise Montreal Fringe Festival. Recent appearances also include the 2016 Melbourne Emerging Writer’s Festival, Melbourne Theatre Company’s 2015 Neon Season, the 2014 Sydney Writers’ Festival and the 2014 Indianapolis Fringe. Her ode to 1980s teen movie director John Hughes is published in the Women of Letters compendium ‘Between Us’.
