Camille Intson (alias, Camie) (b. 1997) is a Hamilton-born multidisciplinary artist and researcher whose practice spans writing, performance, music, new media, and emerging technology. Her critically acclaimed body of work has been honoured with a Playwrights' Guild of Canada Tom Hendry Award, Colleen Peterson Songwriting Award, NNPF National Playwriting Competition Award, Hamilton Music Award, Best in Fringe/Venue and New Play Contest Award, and a Canadian Folk Music Award nomination. Intson is also currently a PhD Candidate within the University of Toronto's Faculty of Information, where her work explores queer and feminist embodiments of emerging technologies. She can be found everywhere online at and/or @thecamiliad. 

As a playwright and theatre maker, Camille’s works have been called “tragic and daring… theatre that sets itself apart” (Steel City Girl), praised for their “high-concept premise[s]” (CBC), “tight, powerful, and inherently theatrical” (View Magazine) texts, and stylized physical realizations. Her recent playwriting work has been supported by Tarragon Theatre, Canadian Stage, Studio180 Theatre, Theatre Aquarius, Nightwood Theatre, Cahoots Theatre, Pat The Dog Theatre Creation, the Grand Theatre London, Expect Theatre, the TAP Centre for Creativity, the Paprika Festival, and the Toronto and Ontario Arts Councils, among others.

Most recently, her play We All Got Lost won the 2021 Robert Beardsley Award for Young Playwrights (issued by the Playwrights’ Guild of Canada) after winning the 2019 Hamilton Fringe New Play Contest, Best in Fringe, and Best in Venue awards. Other recent projects include the 2021 New Media Prize shortlisted betweenspace (2020 Brink Festival) and Patchface with Allswell Productions, supported by the Ontario and London Arts Councils. Her plays have received development and/or support from Nightwood Theatre, Pat The Dog Theatre Creation, Theatre Aquarius, the Grand Theatre London, the TAP Centre for Creativity, the Paprika Festival, the Ontario and Toronto Arts Councils, and the Hamilton and Winnipeg Fringe Festivals. She is particularly interested in the venture of creating challenging, transdisciplinary work for new generation (under 30) audiences, using visual and textual languages informed by experiments with emerging technologies, ie. algorithms, experimental projections, and virtual reality.

Intson's discography as a singer-songwriter and musical storyteller (under the pseudonym 'Camie') combines traditional folk stylings with contemporary alternative/pop textures, bridging acoustic and electronic sonics. Her 2021 EP "troubadour" (Nominee, 2023 Canadian Folk Music Awards) and follow up single "Winter" (Winner, 2022 Colleen Peterson Songwriting Award) were widely acclaimed with premiere features from Indie88, Canadian Beats, Music Mecca Nashville, The Hamilton Spectator, and more. She frequently performs with her trio at music and arts festivals across Southern Ontario.

She is also an experienced educator and workshop facilitator, having taught numerous post-secondary courses, keynoted various events, and lectured at the University of Toronto (St. George and Scarborough campuses) and Western University. Intson has also facilitated creative workshops with numerous community groups and organizations across Southern Ontario.

Camille currently lives and works between Dundas/Hamilton and 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 grumpy kitten Leo and can be found everywhere on the internet at @thecamiliad, or at
