STRPTS (striptease read) is a series of intrigue created by bouts live and direct on stage and broadcast audio visually in situ in real time.
Cinema Sticado collective brings to scene a miniature universe made of recycled cardboard to tell with a particular aesthetic a story tinged with mystery, sex, corruption, murder and persecution.
The audience sees on a large screen the projection of that story as a movie, plus they can also find the making off live: how actors-handlers involved moving characters and objects in that world in miniature at the same while they film it with cameras; how they generate sounds to create sound atmosphere and give voice to the characters.
Cinema Sticado do not use any kind of audiovisual prerecorded material and both the filmed image as the sounds and voices are generated and processed in real time by digital tools controlled by the actors themselves before being projected.
