Striptease

What are you expecting to see when you go to the theatre? And what if the show is called Striptease? Pere Faura’s solo humourously and ironically plays with the conventions of dance performances and the art of undressing. Striptease talks about our expectations, about how desire works in both forms and about the seductive relationship between performer and spectator. In this Striptease, your gaze takes the lead role.
