Dance Like Everybody's Watching: An Interview With Choreographer Vincent Paterson Comments (0)

Madonna fans know Vincent Paterson as the choreographer who worked on her “Express Yourself” video, her Marie Antoinette “Vogue” extravaganza for MTV, her Oscars performance of “Sooner or Later (I Always Get My Man)” and also as the man who directed and choreographed one of her greatest projects, the Blond Ambition World Tour.

 

More recently, he was the subject of the outstanding documentary The Man Behind the Throne, which detailed in particular his work with both Madonna and Michael Jackson.

In truth, his career encompasses many things outside of the King and Queen of Pop.

Now, Paterson is preparing an autobiography, and he is appearing one night only in a talkback called Dance Films Presents: An Evening with Vincent Paterson (get your tickets now!), during which he will speak about six or so of his most famous pieces—and give all the dish on what made them work. He will also detail what it was like collaborating with the household names who executed his fancy footwork.

What follows is an abbreviated version of my talk with Vincent; I wanted to hold some stuff back until after his appearance so I wouldn't give too much of it away. After all, he knows a lot of the details behind some of pop's greatest moments ... because he made them happen ...

Okay, you don't get to crawl into bed with the legendary choreographer who gave both Michael Jackson and Madonna some of their most inspired moves, but you do get to meet and hear him speak about his brilliant career if you attend Dance Films Presents: An Evening with Vincent Paterson.

The program is August 25, 8-10:30 p.m. at the SVA Theatre (333 W. 23rd St.) in NYC.

From a press release:

DANCE FILMS ASSOCIATION is thrilled to announce ‘AN EVENING WITH VINCENT PATERSON’ at the SVA Theatre on Thursday, August 25. The director and choreographer, who, with superstars Madonna and Michael Jackson, created some of the most iconic moments in pop culture, will take to the stage for a presentation of clips and imagery, and a discussion about his career with host Joseph A. Berger. Mr. Paterson will also read excerpts from his new memoir. Join us for a reception in the SVA Theatre lobby immediately following the evening’s program!

Vincent Paterson is a thirty-plus year veteran of music video, film, theater, and television, best known for his co-direction and choreography of Madonna’s BLOND AMBITION TOUR, considered by many to be the greatest pop spectacle of all time. The award-winning artist has been featured twice in the Dance on Camera Festival, co-presented by Dance Films Association and the Film Society of Lincoln Center: first in 2006, in the tribute program VINCENT PATERSON: MASTER OF ALL MEDIA, and again in 2014, as the subject of the feature documentary THE MAN BEHIND THE THRONE.

AN EVENING WITH VINCENT PATERSON will celebrate Mr. Paterson’s extraordinary body of work, including choreography in music videos like Michael Jackson’s SMOOTH CRIMINAL and Madonna’s VOGUE and EXPRESS YOURSELF; film credits including Mike Nichols’ THE BIRDCAGE, Alan Parker’s EVITA, and Lars von Trier’s DANCER IN THE DARK; and theater work as choreographer on Hal Prince’s Broadway production of KISS OF THE SPIDER WOMAN (starring Chita Rivera), and Cirque du Soleil’s VIVA! ELVIS in Las Vegas.

AN EVENING WITH VINCENT PATERSON is presented in association with the Museum of Modern Art’s Silver Anniversary screening of MADONNA: TRUTH OR DARE, the groundbreaking behind-the-scenes documentary of the BLOND AMBITION TOUR, onWednesday, August 24 (tickets available for MoMA Film Plus members). Simultaneously and in coordination with the film’s revival, Metrograph will present MADONNA: A BODY OF WORK, a retrospective of the superstar’s most iconic film roles starting Friday, August 26.

Get tickets here! See ya there.

Maury Povich's Wet Dream! Comments (0)

Article-2264203-17014CAE000005DC-791_634x636

In a surprising development, Prince Jackson—Michael Jackson's son—has decided he wants a post-mortem paternity test performed in order to determine once and for all whether the late Dr. Arnold Klein was his biological father.

Prince looks like Klein and does not look like Michael Jackson (nor do any of his supposedly biological children), but it's an unexpected development.

Klein died at 70 earlier this month.
