Max Cameron Fearon

Max Cameron Fearon (they/them) is a queer, genderqueer, Mad, and multiply-disabled artist. They’re interested in interdisciplinary performance, collaborative storytelling, and community engagement through the arts. Their practice centres care, engages magic realism, and explores how the relationships we form with ourselves and others reflect larger social realities. 

In the past year, Max has interned in Artistic Directing with SummerWorks; provided dramaturgical support to new plays in development with Nightwood Theatre’s “Write from the Hip” initiative; and mentored in directing with the Canadian Guild of Directors and Choreographers. While they’ve previously focused on direction, dramaturgy, and performance, Max is excited to explore lighting design with the Paprika’s Design Lab, and to be learning with and from their colleagues in the Festival. 
Max is currently co-creating How the Wolf Says Goodnight, a multimedia performance piece on queer care and relational healing from trauma (with River Oliveira). They’re also directing an interactive, touring project about identifying various forms of interpersonal abuse (I Love You and It Hurts – Theatre of the Beat), and an LGBTQ+ community-focused production of Into the Woods (Assoc. Director/Dramaturge – Dead Name Theatre). You can connect with Max via their website at, or on Instagram at @mc.fearon.
