About Us

UNPLUSH is a transdisciplinary art association with dance and performing arts at its core. It brings together artists from various fields such as electronic music, visual arts, dance, performance and graphic design. 

The association is organized in three branches which produce different creative formats while sharing common artistic visions. UNPLUSH Company is dedicated to the production of performances, dance and theater pieces, while HEPTEKA is a collective that organizes transdisciplinary events and AMACLUB is a platform for amateur dancers.

With its vast collaborations, formats and venues, Unplush is actively involved in the swiss cultural scene and produces for a diverse audience.

In 2018, UNPLUSH was 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  won the June Johnson Dance Prize.

MINIMALLY INVASIVE PROCEDURE

“Minimally Invasive Procedure” starts from the two protagonists’ personal investigation on their early encounters with dance and continues to explore the relationship between Marion and Vittorio during the last 18 years of their career as professional dancers. The two performers offer an adult perspective on the facts to the audience, from the distance, acquired during years of exigent practice of their art and with the layer of humour that time allows to cover the young dramatic perception of the events. “Minimally Invasive Procedure” is a rigorous and ridiculous review of a long list of “genres” of the show, as an accompaniment to the protagonists’ narration.  

“It is rare to laugh heartily, out loud, during a dance show… The spectator, embarked by Vittorio, look-alike of Nanni Moretti and Marion, mischievous playmaker, swore to come back at the next (happy) occasion.”  – François Passard, Théâtre de l’Abri, Director
