Strip : Au risque d’aimer - ça
Strip, au risque d’aimer-ça is an immersive dive mixing testimonies, autobiographical story and fiction in the striptease world.
Far from the fantasies and the imaginary based on stereotypes of pornography generated by the strip-club, here is a project which speaks above all about men and women who discover and meet each other through the action of a stripping, and which shifts our gaze to the place of love.
Five years ago, I was a few hours short of my status as an actress, so I started looking for extra work or small roles by answering a few casting calls. The management of a theatre then phoned me. It turned out to be an erotic theatre: Le Chochotte. So from one day to the next, I became a stripper.
Far from stereotypes and ultimately more intellectual than sensual, this play also shares with us the state of mind of those who find themselves in front of men less libidinous than helpless when they confess in the intimacy of a private room their difficulties to love. Because falling in love also is also taking a risk. And this risk ask to be explored.
