Maxime D.-Pomerleau is a multidisciplinary artist living in Montreal. She became known to the media through her alter-ego Batwheel in 2013. Also, an actress, she has played in theatre, short films, TV series and is currently developing her first projects in filmmaking, exploring the form of documentary.
She’s one of the main performers of inclusive dance company Corpuscule Danse since 2014, and has performed independently for various creators, having worked with artists in Canada, France, Germany and Mexico.
Her personal artistic approach questions the presence of the [a]typical body in media and cultural spaces. Regularly invited to roundtables on diversity and inclusion in culture, she collaborates with the Conseil québécois du théâtre, Diversité artistique Montréal and Modern Times Theatre in Montreal and Toronto. Cultural journalist since 2007, Maxime is (sometimes) a radio columnist or blogger, and advocates for access to culture for all.
She lives with McCune-Albright syndrome, a rare genetic disease affecting bone density and endocrine system.
“I believe that Sync Canada can help me discover my strengths in professional networking, self-promotion or creative contexts, as well as identify my weaknesses and help myself to learn from them.”
