About Us

Unplush was founded in 2015. Since then, the company has proposed several artistic productions, inside and outside the frame of theatres’ infrastructures, both in Switzerland and internationally. The company Unplush brings together artists from different fields such as dance, visual arts, video and music.

The work of the Unplush company is the result of the collaboration of different artists directed by Marion Zurbach. The artists gather their efforts around unconventional topics, to address a wide range of audience though humour and physicality in order to challenge interdisciplinarity and established moral values. Over the three years of its existence, Unplush has carried out two other projects in parallel with the Company. These initiatives reflect the wish of the company to address different kinds of audiences, by being present not only as performers, but also as pedagogues and curators.

With “Unplush Invites”, Unplush develops a particular approach to the concept of “hosting” by inviting very diverse audiences to participate to unique events curated by the Unplush Invites collective.

“Amaclub” is a platform that aims to give space to amateur dancers to learn and improve technical skills in contemporary dance and to express their personal emotional universe through creative work.

fried air

Mrs Red, Miss Green and Mister Blue are in the garden. What happens next? I don’t know, because you are in control! Do you want to see the past, or the future? Think about it, time is ticking!”

Fried Air is an interactive show. The Master of Ceremony coordinates the play and its characters. At every plot twist he gives the viewers the opportunity to vote between two options. By voting, each audience member becomes responsible for the sequence of events and for the future of the characters.

Fried Air is a satire about the quest of happiness in a simplistic and stereotypical model. With humour it staged intrigues and dementia in a conformist suburban environment.

The stage is built in a stylised model, manly composed by plastic elements. A game of size-disproportions is used to contrast a realistic image and to highlight the absurdity of the piece.
