A Postmodern Striptease, a burlesque, musical and stand-up comedy hybrid cabaret, with a slight academic edge.

Irene Nicola not only tears strips off herself verbally, she literally tears strips of her clothes off to discover her truest possible self, discussing identity, gender politics, performance theory, and psychoanalysis. All in the name of semi-erotic, comedic burlesque.

With an all original soundtrack, Irene Nicola not only asks the question ‘what is it to be a performer?’ in a world where the self is constantly deconstructed and reinvented she combines it with fun evening of art jokes, penis jokes, psychoanalysis jokes, feminist jokes and even more penis jokes!

Come and join in a light-hearted, not-taking-itself-too-seriously, sexy lecture in performance theory and psychoanalysis, with all original music, burlesque and a few more surprises!

'...Irene Nicola, the adorable chanteuse who leads with confident singing and a sensual touch on her keyboard...' - Timeout

'Funny, challenging, sexy, cerebral and features a Batman-esque subplot about a kid in World War II, oh and Lots of penis jokes..' - The Acting Factory

'Irene’s passionate and triumphant performance leaves the audience with a lasting impression of her love for a repertoire which titillates the senses and challenges the status quo.' - Buzzcuts
