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, graphic design and poetry slam. The artists share their practises and explore the wide-ranging possibilities of performative formats. UNPLUSH’ productions are aiming at a broad audience thanks to its diverse venues, formats and artistic collaborations.

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

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

Three installation performances presenting ironic and political myths, faithful to the absurdity of existence.

TALES FROM THE FAR SIDE explores a modern day Wunderkammer with hybrid spaces, contemporary mythologies, digital media, live performance and music. The installations invite the audience into a poetic universe, imbued with science-fiction aesthetics and a hybridisation of natural and electronic devices. The focus lies on creating a sensual experience that emphasises the metamorphosis of bodies, bringing the digital cabinet of curiosities to life.

Episode I: You are going to die
Episode II: The exile of Chang’e
Episode III: How does the dentist know when to stop?

Concept: Marion Zurbach
