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.

minimally invasive procedure

Minimally Invasive Procedure takes as its starting point the child’s experience in a high-level dance school. The piece questions the institution, while revisiting memories of the performers.

What about the child and his body? His panic when he sees the change at puberty? His dismay facing injuries and doctors, fragility and loneliness?

But what it also its moments of joy, solidarity, pride and determination?
