An Evening with Professor Pamela Howard OBE

Pamela Howard | 2022 | 90 MINS
Pamela Howard, acclaimed director and scenographer, has worked in opera and contemporary music theatre all around the world.  

In Detail

Join Pamela for a very special evening of talk, music and visual reflections, accompanied by visuals on the big screen, celebrating her life’s work in anticipation of the publication of her graphic memoir, “The Art of Making Theatre.”    

Pamela Howard is a Director and Scenographer working primarily in opera and contemporary music theatre. Her practice encompasses large and small scale productions, in major opera houses and unloved and forgotten spaces.

Trained at the Slade School of Fine Art (1958/9) she has had full career as a theatre designer, developing a love of text and context with Fine Art. Since 2000 she has been the total creator of productions developing a scenographic language of beauty and simplicity on stage, where the performer is always ‘the carrier of the myth’. Sustainability and imaginative use of space are central to her practice. A compulsive observer of human life, she is never without a pencil and a sketchbook, notating the everyday, methodically storing her pencil sketches and reworking them on stage.
