Chantal (they/she/he) is an interdisciplinary movement artist, actor, clown, playwright and musician with Latinx and German roots. Chantal finished their acting training at UBC and produced their first play Papa Records Everything in 2020. In the 2021 Nanaimo and Vancouver fringe festivals, they composed, co-wrote, and performed Wings Over Water: A Diasporic Bird Play, a sound, dance and ancestral incantation. Recently, they have co-founded Shapeshifter Media Collective, a collaboration in the making of analog dance/clown films and soundscores that celebrate the queer body and voice in its healing. Chantal’s work centres on roots, grounded in uncovering the mysteries of their mixed ancestries. They are based on the unceded and stolen lands of the Musqueam, Squamish, and Tsleil-Waututh people.
