After three successful editions of MalTease, the fourth one is just around the corner. After well over a year without any form of live entertainment, MalTease aims at providing all those attending a fun evening whilst ensuring that all the proper precautions are to be taken to guarantee the safety of both the audience and the performers.
What to expect?
MalTease is a Variety and Burlesque project inspired by the pulsating atmosphere of Valletta’s main artery of entertainment – Strada Stretta.
This exciting event is back for its fourth edition with even more excitement. The performance revolves around acts, loosely tied in by a story that will take you on a journey through time, bringing back Malta’s cabaret heyday.
The team is committed to continue with their efforts in showcasing the diversity and versatility of the art of Burlesque which consists of not only burlesque dance but also comedy, song, multidisciplinary skills, a world of satyr, glitter, bawdy jokes, contagious confidence, fun and feathers. They are also dedicated to giving all those wanting to perform a platform that is inclusive for all body types, colour, LGBTIQA+, any age and genders. Local performers are to be joined by artists from around the world to create the exciting show that is to be the fourth edition of Malta’s biggest Burlesque show. Apart from burlesque one will also be able to enjoy a variety of other performances such as Comedy, Live Singing and, of course, Magic.
The team comprises a variety of professional performers from Malta, Slovakia, Germany, and the United Kingdom.
