What do you expect to see when you go to a performance at Palladium? What do you expect to see when you go to a striptease show? And what do you expect to see when you go to a dance show called Striptease at Palladium?

The conventions of theatre and striptease are put side by side for a naked comparison in Pere Faura’s stand-up monologue Striptease, stirring up our role as spectators. With humour, surprises and the mechanisms of desire, the seductive relationship between audience and the stage performer is turned upside down. We take a deep dive into the world of striptease, our expectations ironized and suddenly – Pere Faura changes focus and your gaze plays the lead role!
Who is ultimately undressed – is it the actor or the spectator?
Pere Faura is a Catalan performance artist with a background in ballet and contemporary dance. In his work, he mixes pop cultural phenomena such as striptease, disco or musicals with traditional theatre conventions. The result is challenging and thought-provoking.
