Could the word repertoire be used to describe one’s behavior as a façade?

    What really do you understand by repertoire, and in what way could it be related to "one's behavior as a facade" (whatever that is)? Need more details.

No. The word repertoire describes a set of skills or knowledge that one has at their disposal and makes frequent use of. One might have a repertoire of deceptions and disingenuous behaviors that they use to put forth a facade, but the repertoire is not the behavior or the facade; it is the catalog of skills and knowledge being drawn on.
