Multimedia Performance Artist.
Wearer of Hats.
Hi! I'm Camille.
I am an award-winning Esto-Canadian multidisciplinary artist, currently based out of London, England.
Although a large bulk of my work is situated within the disciplines of writing, directing, dramaturgy, music/composition, and digital media, I take a special interest in collaborative, inter-, trans-, or multidisciplinary projects.
I am always looking for new, passionate collaborators - so why not get in touch? Let's work together!
Born and raised in Hamilton Ontario, Camille Intson is an Esto-Canadian, award-winning young career artist working across disciplines in theatre, writing, performance and installation art, music, electronic literatures, and digital media.
Her multi-prize-winning work as a playwright has been developed and produced across Canada in both amateur and professional capacities. For the last three years, she has worked to create experimental multimedia-heavy theatre and performance work mandated to challenge human agency in the age of machines, most notably as artistic director of award-winning sister collectives ArtLaunch Theatre Company and Pink Pantheon Projects.
Select recent credits include: the Best of Fringe/New Play winning We All Got Lost (Pantheon), the installation Objects: London, Portrait of a City (TAP Centre for Creativity), the OAC funded Patchface, The Last 48, The Stock, and Adrik's Story (ArtLaunch), Road (dev. The Grand Theatre London, Newmarket National Play Festival 2017 National Playwriting Competition Winner, About Love Festival), Marty and Joel and the Edge of Chaos (Tinkerspace Play Labs, Alumnae Theatre, 2017 Lillian Kroll Prize Winner), Antigone (Anouilh/Galantiere) (The ARTS Project), the musical albums renegade (acoustic) and Sharp Teeth, two semesters in residence as Student Writer-in-Residence at Western University, and eight months in residence in Studio 2D at the TAP Centre for Creativity.
Camille is a graduate of the English Language and Literature and Theatre Studies programs at Western University in London, Ontario, Canada, having graduated at the top of both Honours majors with two Gold Medals (and over ten other awards/scholarships) for academic achievement. She is a current postgraduate student (and Embassy Postgraduate Scholarship Recipient) at the Royal Central School of Speech and Drama in London, England.
Artistic training credits include: the Royal Central School of Speech and Drama (London, U.K.), City Academy London, The Actors' Centre London, Theatre Ontario's Stratford Intensive (2018 Scholarship Recipient), The École Jacques Lecoq, the Fool at Heart School of Sacred Clowning, Let's Learn Digital, Digital Catapult London, and the Toronto Fringe's Theatre Enterpreneurs' Network and Training Program.
Aside from the usual writing projects, she is continuing to make weird surrealistic intermedial stuff whilst in pursuit of higher education. Her other creative interests include: feminist/"postfeminist" and LGBTQIA theatre and performance, queer and cross-temporalities, political art/protest, environmental art/activism, practice as research, and the posthuman. Or, really, any story with a beating heart and a dark contour.
When not making or engaging with creative work, Camille enjoys eating salmon teriyaki, dwelling mindlessly in outdoor spaces, and laugh/cackling very loudly. She does not enjoy writing personal artist bios.
Camille can be found everywhere on the internet at @camilleintson or at camilleintson.com.
As both a working professional artist and [institutionalized] postgraduate student, my work operates at the imperfect axis of theory and practice. A lot of my personal philosophy regarding art making (not to mention education) privileges process over outcome, multiplicities over singularities, and vulnerability,
empathy, community, and environment as vital creative partners.
Thank you for taking a look at my online space.
Let's make some stuff together.
