Read what the critics are saying about our film.

“Beyond the personal stories, the movie frames the tour and “Truth or Dare” as landmarks in the push for gay rights and awareness, and makes a convincing case.”- Glenn Kenny, New York Times.

“…Ester Gould and Reijer Zwaan’s documentary is a cultural record of the highest importance, as it dares to give a serious treatment to presumably frivolous and feminine matters.” – Diego Semerene, Slant Magazine.

“Those terrific dancers who Vogued their way to brief stardom backing up Madonna are front and center in a warm and absorbing doc about their troupe and what went down post-Madge.” – David Noh, Film Journal.

“…focuses on male dancers who actually grabbed the gold, achieved world notoriety, and then fell by the wayside like broken figurines.” – Michael Musto, Paper Magazine.


“Truth or Dare” Again in Hot New Doc

As Madonna wrote to one of them on a Christmas gift, “Grab life by the balls and don’t let go”. But for the dancers, it wasn’t so easy. They’ve learned that fame and friendship may be fleeting, but loving yourself—if you can locate that feeling—lasts a lifetime. Read the whole article, written by Micheal Musto, in

Strike a Pose in US cinemas from January 17th!

In 1990, seven young male dancers 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.

“Seven fierce male dancers became Madonna’s paragons of pride. In Strike a Pose we learn – paradoxically – how their own lives were clouded by secrecy and compromise,” say directors Ester Gould and Reijer Zwaan. “Once again, their strength and resilience inspire us. We’re thrilled that we can share what we believe to be a liberating and important story with audiences in the US and Canada.”

BOND/360 will release the documentary in theaters from January 17th. For more information about the theatrical release, go to
