About Us

Unplush’s members come from different artistic fields, such as dance, visual arts, costume design, video and music. Together we create interdisciplinary performances to shape situations which are inspired by topics that challenge us.

Our shows are exploring unusual and playful ways of performing. Our favourite aesthetics (victims) are baroque or futurism falsely idealized. Unplush’s shows generate a special atmosphere: somewhere between discomfort and hilarity, somewhat comparable to the feeling of being stared at in the dark, by a teddy bear.

We also like to contribute to inter-collaborations among artists, by offering to performers or musicians to participate in our events called “Unplush Invites”. In this vision, the Unplush community intends to use its network to create a programming that reflects its interest in electronic music as well as entertaining and challenging performances.

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.
