Logo sets release date for Strike a Pose doc on Madonna's dancers
What are you looking at? This spring, all eyes will be on Logo's new Madonna-themed documentary, Strike a Pose.
The network announced Thursday it will debut the nonfiction feature, which traveled the 2016 festival circuit with appearances at Berlinale and the Tribeca Film Festival, on April 6 at 9 p.m. ET.
Directed by Ester Gould and Reijer Zwaan, the film revisits several dancers who worked with the Material Girl on her Blond Ambition Tour some 25 years after Alek Keshishian captured their rise to prominence in his 1991 documentary Madonna: Truth or Dare. That film went on to become a pop cultural phenomenon, earning $15 million at the box office on a reported budget of $4.5 million.
"I had a message on my answering machine: ‘Um, hi, I'm trying to reach Carlton. This is Madonna.' And I was like, ‘What the f—?'" Carlton Wilborn says of landing a spot on the controversial concert series in the Strike a Pose trailer. "That tour was about freedom; freedom as a human being, freedom in regards to speaking the truth."
The film catches up with several other backup dancers who performed alongside Madonna throughout her "Vogue" era, including Kevin Stea, Oliver Crumes, Luis Camacho, Salim Gauwloos, and Jose Xtravaganza. <iframe src="//media.mtvnservices.com/embed/mgid:arc:video:logotv.com:d58aaef7-1c3b-41e2-9e23-ce9d761807f9" width="512" height="288" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen="" class="" scrolling="no" resize="0" replace_attributes="1" name=""></iframe>á§çmÝVßÑ¿:§ßÕ½»¦úkÍxß×=óMü
