About Us

The artistic association UNPLUSH was founded in Bern in 2015. Under the artistic direction of Marion Zurbach, it brings together artists from different fields such as dance, theatre, electronic music, visual arts, and poetry slam to explore the vast potential of performative formats. UNPLUSH’ productions are aiming at a broad audience thanks to its diverse formats, artistic collaborations and venues.

Unplush also organises UNPLUSH INVITES, an event format programming 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. UNPLUSH is supported by the Dampfzentrale Bern.

Cabane B Bümplitz

THE FAR SIDE COMPILATION  Cabane B Bumplitz, 8., 15., 22 MAY 2019 (Preview Dampfzentrale Bern, 3 may 2019)

8 May. Instant gallery soup
15 May. Chang’e spaceological exhibition
22 May. How does the dentist know when to stop?


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, emphasizing the metamorphosis of bodies. A triptych of performance installations on futuristic cabinets of curiosities.
