By UNPLUSH & JAWIS
UNPLUSH and JAWIS bring together performance and live music to create "POSH", a “mocku-exhibition” with the aim to promote the lifestyle and justify the existence of a high-class society.
The work consists in different scenes, each linked to a supposedly convincing argument in favor of the ruling class. The provocative attitude of the performers confronts the audience - without being too kind and with a strong irony - with what our society legitimates.
The performance brings together different living arts mediums such as dance, slam, theatrical rhetoric and electronic music (synthesizers, voice, theremin).
“An interdisciplinary, performative moment of soft and playful social criticism. We were all dipped in gold and felt intensely taken by the UNPLUSH-posse. Unforgettable!” –Marie-Isabelle von Walterskirchen, Vazem Collective
