About Us

The artistic association UNPLUSH was founded in Bern in 2015. Under the artistic direction of Marion Zurbach, it brings together artists from different fields such as dance, theatre, electronic music, visual arts, and poetry slam to explore the vast potential of performative formats. UNPLUSH’ productions are aiming at a broad audience thanks to its diverse formats, artistic collaborations and venues.

Unplush also organises UNPLUSH INVITES, an event format programming electronic music with live performances and AMACLUB, a creative platform for amateur dancers.

In 2018, UNPLUSH has been awarded a three-year support by PRAIRIE, the co-production model of Migros Kulturprozent for innovative Swiss theater and dance companies. UNPLUSH is supported by the Dampfzentrale Bern.

In 2019 UNPLUSH  has been awarded the June Johnson Dance Price.

Schlachthaus Theater Bern

Schlachthaus Theater Bern // 12, 13 October 2019 // 7 pm

To talk about my body and its history, I asked my friend Camelia Cabrera, osteopath, to examine me in front of you on stage. I offered her to share her observations on the transformations that happen to my body through the practice of dance, especially classical dance. This evening, we invite you to discover together a sensitive reading of the body, the palimpsest body.

Watts app, the 2nd of October:
M: “Ca va pas de mini flip? T’inquiète on va s’amuser, je suis trop heureuse de faire ça avec toi!!”
C: “Mini mais encore masqué par l’excitation. J’ai confiance en toi à 300% mais j’espère être à la hauteur”
M: “Tu vas être super, crois moi j’ai un sixième sens pour ça;) Et penses que tu vas juste faire ton travail et.. il est très beau ton travail. En attendant profitez bien de la playa!! Bisous”

With Camelia Cabrera and Marion Zurbach
