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, graphic design and poetry slam. The artists share their practises and explore the wide-ranging possibilities of performative formats. UNPLUSH’ productions are aiming at a broad audience thanks to its diverse venues, formats and artistic collaborations.

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.

BAD Festival Bilbao

La Fundición Bilbao //  20 October 2018 // 7 pm

FLIPPER, the hero from the eponymous TV show was played by a female dolphin named Kathy. In an interview, Kathy’s trainer Rick O’Barry states, that the animal suffering from captivity, committed suicide in his arms. From this testimony, FLIPPER presents an investigation of the tragedy. It aims to shed light on the involvement of the different characters in Kathy’s tragedy, staging three performers who play the roles of Kathy, Rick O’Barry and the investigator. Through various hypotheses about the real or fictional cycle of events, the piece gets hold of and frees the audience from their illusions.
