Telia Nevile (she/her)
Writer, producer, performer
Melbourne-based writer and performer Telia Nevile combines storytelling, poetry, ridiculous interpretive dance, cabaret and punk to create shows that celebrate the outsider and remind you that you’re not alone.
Her most recent solo shows – Little Monsters (2020 Melbourne Fringe Best Work in Festival), What Would John Hughes Do? (2020 Melbourne Fringe Best Cabaret Nominee), Untitled No. 7 (2018 Melbourne Fringe Best Performance Nominee, 2019 Green Room Awards Best Cabaret Writing Nominee, 2020 Fringe at the Edge of the World Best Performance Nominee) and Poet vs Pageant (2015 Melbourne Fringe Best Emerging Writer, 2017 Montreal Fringe Best Late Night Moment, 2017 Montreal Fringe Best English Performance Nominee, 2018 NZ Fringe Most Innovative Work Nominee) – have received critical and audience acclaim across Australia, New Zealand and Canada.
Telia maintains a photographic practice exploring the retention and creation of memories, and the ever-tempting world of constructed nostalgia.
She's a dog-lover, a potato-addict, and the webmaster for the Magnificent Weirdos.
