the artist utilizes the isolation and repetition of individual movement elements of the lap dances, performed on empty chairs. the movements that usually appear erotically charged get decontextualized and thus appear rather mechanical. this clarifies the aspect of the physical work involved in strlpping, which exists completely detached from the customers. the lines and questions read out by the audience on one hand provide insights into the daily routine of a dancer, but also criticize the misogynistic behavior of some visitors of a table dance bar.
