Camille Intson [alias, camie] (she/her) is an award-winning queer/femme multidisciplinary artist and practitioner-researcher. Her prize-winning writing, conceptual art, alternative folk music, and performance work has received international attention and critical acclaim. Camille’s work has been developed, produced, and/or supported by The Grand Theatre London, Theatre Aquarius, Pat The Dog Theatre Creation, NNPF (2017 winner for Road), the TAP Centre for Creativity, the Ontario Arts Council, Theatre Ontario, Alumnae Theatre, the Paprika Festival, and the Hamilton and Winnipeg Fringe Festivals. Her latest solo record, entitled troubadour, will be out later this year. Camille’s creative work often explores themes of queer intimacy and sexuality, sociocultural memory, and what it means to be human in an increasingly technological world.
Camille is a graduate of the Royal Central School of Speech and Drama (London, U.K.) and Western University’s Faculty of Arts and Humanities; currently she is working towards a PhD in Information, with collaborative specializations in Sexual Diversity Studies and Knowledge Media Design, at the University of Toronto’s iSchool. Her interdisciplinary academic research, which engages with queer technology studies, critical making, performance studies, research-creation, and digital and augmented intimacies, is generously funded by a SSHRC Joseph Armand Bombardier Canada Graduate Scholarship - Doctoral (CGS-D) Award.
Although Camille has moved around a lot, she currently resides in Tkaronto (Toronto) on the traditional territory of the Mississaugas of the Credit, the Anishnabeg, the Chippewa, the Haudenosaunee, and the Wendat peoples, covered by the Dish With One Spoon Territory. She lives with her sweet kitten, His Royal Highness, Prince Leopold Wolfgang Intson. She can be found everywhere on the internet at @thecamiliad, or right here at camilleintson.com.
