“Burlesque girls were alchemists. They were steel-tough performers who were willing to use kitchens as dressing rooms, haul their costume bags through the snow, and go into debt over fake diamonds, all for the five minutes onstage when they were goddesses.”

MalTease is a variety and burlesque project inspired by the pulsating atmosphere of Valletta’s main artery of entertainment – Strada Stretta. The perfomance revolves around a series of acts by both local and foreign artists, loosely tied in by a story that will recall the spirit of this notorious street.
Undine LaVerve, in collaboration with Spazju Kreattiv, sets out to show the diversity and versatility of the art of Burlesque which not only encompasses the burlesque dance form but also comedy, artistry, multidisciplinary skills, shock effect, cheekiness, silliness and more. Maltese artists will be joined by performers from London, Amsterdam, Paris, Vienna, Helsinki and Stockholm!
You are all invited to join for a night which will transport you into a world of decadent cabaret and glamorous showgirls, sultry songs from the good old days and the atmosphere of the splendid days of our capital, Valletta.
