STRIKE A POSE
Ester Gould & Reijer Zwaan, 2016, Netherlands/Belgium, 85 min
When it comes to Madonna, the male dancers who vogued and let their bodies move to the music (move to the music!) are just as iconic as her cone bra. When it was released, Truth or Dare offered a daring message entangled in their backstage shenanigans: that these dancers could be gay and happy. Twenty-five years later, this glimpse of their real backstage and post-Madonna lives tells a much darker story. (Samantha Mitchell)
Dancer Carlton Wilborn is scheduled to attend.
