Strike a Pose

Director: Ester Gould, Reijer Zwaan
The iconic dancers from Truth or Dare - In Bed with Madonna take us back behind the scenes twenty-five years later. They reveal the truth about their lives during and after Madonna’s tour.
In 1991, the controversial documentary Truth or Dare - In Bed with Madonna offered a glimpse behind the scenes of Madonna’s world tour. The seven young dancers (six gay, one heterosexual) appearing in the movie boldly flaunted their proclivity, thus growing into icons of sexual freedom. But it turns out the positive image Madonna evoked was not entirely truthful. Twenty-five years later, the dancers reveal the truth about their lives during and after the Blond Ambition Tour, which the audience did not get to see at the time.
