Yvon Bonenfant is a vocal artist who likes to explore what else voice, performance and art can do. His pieces, ranging from theatrical performance to installation to media art, have been shown in 10 countries in the last 10 years. In 2009, he was artist-in-residence at EMPAC. His work, collaborative and solo, has received support from Arts Council England, Wellcome Trust, Arts and Humanities Research Council, Canada Council for the Arts, Conseil des Arts et des Lettres du Québec, the British Academy, and many collaborating supporters.
He took a recent turn toward exploring interactive work that puts the audience’s voices at its core, and is interested in bringing progressive aesthetic experiences to children, rather than the same old same old.
He is also Reader in Performing Arts at the University of Winchester.
