Telia Nevile

Melbourne-based writer and performer Telia Nevile combines storytelling, poetry, ridiculous interpretive dance and punk cabaret to create shows that will make you laugh, let you cry and remind you that you’re not alone. They range from an epic poem about a blood-soaked beauty pageant, to an uncomfortably honest exploration of the expectations and realities of growing up. Her most recent show, Little Monster – a piece about inner demons written in the style of Dr Suess – won Best Work in Festival at the 2021 Melbourne Fringe, and previous pieces have won awards, award nominations and critical acclaim in Australia, New Zealand and Canada.
