Black Gold Festival Festival presents an immersive film screening of Strike a Pose

What does it take to express yourself? The surprising and moving story of Madonna’s most famous troupe of dancers.

 In 1990, seven young male dancers – 6 gay, 1 straight – joined Madonna on her most controversial tour. On stage and in the iconic film Truth or Dare they showed the world how to express yourself. Now, 25 years later, they reveal the truth about life during and after the tour. Strike a Pose is a dramatic tale about overcoming shame and finding the courage to be who you are.

Accompanying the film screening of Strike a Pose, Black Gold Arts Festival brings Manchester-based Vogue Ball favourites the House of Ghetto to HOME, by supporting a brand-new choreographer Natasha Gooden, in their first cinema event. Hear Madonna’s dancers speak for themselves on film, with Vogue brought up-to-date by this newly commissioned response-piece dance, supported by Vogue-Ball-style madness. Guaranteed no-holds-barred entertainment.

This event is produced by Black Gold Arts Festival, Choreographed by Natasha Gooden. Dancer Malachi Simmons. Developed by BGAF DanceLab. Supported by HOME & Contact..
