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.

THE FAR SIDE COMPILATION presents ironic and political myths, faithful to the absurdity of existence. The mosaic of live performances, electronic soundscapes and digital media creates a sensory experience, a place of encounter, emphasising the metamorphosis of bodies. A triptych of performance installations on futuristic cabinets of curiosities.
