Camille Intson

Camille Intson is a writer, theatre creator, and media artist living and working in Southern Ontario. After having worked for years as a harpist, poet, and Hamilton Music Award winning singer/songwriter, Intson’s first plays were produced by the University of Western Ontario’s Purple Shorts One-Act Festival and have since been workshopped and produced professionally around the country.

One of her first plays, Road, was workshopped and developed with the Grand Theatre in London Ontario, directed by Jeff Culbert and Megan Watson with dramaturgical support from Lisa O’Connell of Pat The Dog Theatre Creation. Road was a regional selection for the Grand’s 2017 Playwrights’ Cabaret, an international selection for About Love: A Festival of Short Plays in Vancouver, and a national selection for the inaugural Newmarket National Ten-Minute Play Festival. Road was the First Place winner of the NNPF National Playwriting Competition.

Intson’s other short plays, The Boy Who Bled (Red Umbrella Theatre Festival, Purple Shorts at UWO), Blood Lines (created as a playwright-in-residence at the 2017 Paprika Festival, workshopped and staged at Native Earth Performing Arts) and Marty and Joel and the Edge of Chaos (in development with Tinkerspace Play Labs in London, Ontario) have also received both professional and community workshops and development opportunities.

In early 2017, Intson became the Founder and Co-Director of ArtLaunch Theatre Company, based out of Winnipeg Manitoba, alongside creative colleague Rafaella Rosenberg. Their debut production, The Stock, premiered at the Winnipeg Fringe Festival in July of that year. Intson continues to develop work with ArtLaunch, more information about which can be found at Facebook.com/ArtLaunchTheatreCo.

Intson is a current English Language and Literature (Hon.Spec) and Theatre/Performance Studies student at the University of Western Ontario, exploring her intersectional passions for film, law, political science, scientific and cultural theory, and history. She aspires to attend graduate school in the near future for law and literature.
