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.
