What is HUNCH?

HUNCH is Vancouver’s only festival entirely dedicated to the development and presentation of multi-disciplinary solo performance work. In its first year of operation it will present and support the creation of emerging and established full-length and short solo creations of a wide range of performing art disciplines.

We would like to acknowledge that the festival takes place on the unceded territories of the Coast Salish Peoples, including the territories of the xʷməθkwəy̓əm (Musqueam), Skwxwú7mesh (Squamish), Stó:lō and Səl̓ílwəta/Selilwitulh (Tsleil-Waututh) Nations.
