UNO Fest 2017 Artist Line-up
From the underground to the mainstream, Intrepid Theatre’s UNO Fest of solo performance, celebrates 20 years of daring stories, acclaimed artists and shit-disturbers.
Fifteen bold and innovative shows from Toronto, Vancouver, Victoria, San Francisco and New York, including 9 premieres and 5 commissions play the 20th Annual UNO Fest from May 17-27, 2017 at 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.
