About Us

The artistic association Unplush was founded 2015 in Bern. It proposes interdisciplinary productions inside and outside the frame of theatres in Switzerland and abroad. Under the direction of Marion Zurbach, the company brings together artists from several fields such as dance, theatre, electronic music, visual arts, graphic design and poetry slam, to explore the vast potential of performance formats. Unplush also organises UNPLUSH INVITES, an event format merging 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.

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.
