Uno Fest
May 17-27, 2017

From the underground to the mainstream, UNO Fest is a hotbed of contemporary solo theatre and performance. This year we are celebrating 20 years of daring stories, acclaimed artists and shit-disturbers.

The 20th Annual UNO Fest runs May 17-27, 2017 in the Metro Studio, Intrepid Theatre Club & more. From parties to soundscapes, from performance art to a salsa lesson, this 11 day festival is packed to the brim with genre-defying, boundary-pushing solo performance. See the 2017 line-up HERE. Launched in the basement of the Bedford Hotel in 1997, UNO Fest is North America’s longest running festival of solo performance. Intrepid Theatre has presented more than 330 solo shows at UNO, and is proud to bring some of the country’s – and the world’s – most innovative solo talents to Victoria every May.

Fact: the opening night performance of every show at the festival is Pay-What-You-Can for tickets at the door, and we hold 25% of the capacity for PWYC tickets.


Recent Uno artists include Evalyn Parry, Mike Daisey, Alanna Mitchell, Itai Erdal, Tara Travis, Cliff Cardinal, Deborah Dunn, Wonderheads, Alon Nashmann, Hawksley Workman, Shirley Gnome, Simon Munnery and Chase Padgett. Uno Fest has presented more than 300 solo theatre artists over the last two decades – have a look at our Uno Fest History.
