You are an artist because…. I want to share stories
Pamela is passionate about telling stories and creating shared experiences. Each production she works on gives her as she states: “the opportunity to learn something new, and work with different people from a variety of backgrounds”. Pamela started her career in her hometown Vienna before moving to Germany to work with the Staatsoper Stuttgart. She currently lives in London where she completed training as a director at Mountview Academy of Theatre Arts. She obtained an MA in Create and Cultural Entrepreneurship at Goldsmiths University of London which helped her to gain fresh insights into how to lead and produce cultural events. “I want to engage audiences and communities with theatre. I believe that theatre is a powerful tool which unites us and enables us to learn from one another”. Projects she is particularly fond to look back on are Cry Havoc (Park Theatre, London), Othello (Rose Playhouse, London), the opera ‘Mozart & Salieri (Arcola Theatre & Tour) and a Commedia dell’Arte take on Oscar Wilde’s Lady Windermere’s Fan, which toured in the UK and Ireland. Pamela balances her work with regular visits to her fencing club, where she enjoys competing with friends.
