UNO Fest Online April 28 – May 9, 2020 — INTREPID THEATRE
New work, local premieres, original video content, streaming live performances and free artist talks. We are thrilled to bring you UNO Fest Online!
Theatre outside the lines.
UNO Fest has always pushed the boundaries of what solo performance can be. Facing this global pandemic, we are not able to gather in the theatre together and must keep our communities safe. We are not cancelling or postponing this year’s UNO Fest, instead we are working to bring UNO to your home with UNO Fest Online.
Experience video clips and new work online, interviews with the artists, free streaming solo performances, and Facebook Happy Half-Hours with artists and artistic staff. We are embracing our festival tagline – this is theatre outside the lines!
We see this as an experiment. A way to keep art and performance in your life while isolated at home. A challenge to rise to. A new meaning to the term UNO Fest as you experience UNO while being UNO.

To ensure payments under the Wage Subsidy Scheme are transparent and that the scheme is accountable to the public, you can search for companies that have received payments.
The search will tell you:
