Review: Madonna brings a heartfelt, personal touch to her Miami concert

By now, Madonna’s fans know what to expect from one of her concerts: plenty of high-energy dancing, clever thematic vignettes, impressive stage props, colorful costumes and an eclectic set list that draws from highlights throughout her entire career.

Such a production demands precision, above all, with every performer having to know exactly when and where to be. There is precious little room for either improvisation or spontaneity, except for during carefully scripted moments (which kind of comically defeats the whole purpose).

But on Saturday night at a packed AmericanAirlines Arena in downtown Miami, Madonna managed to deviate from the mostly rigid set list and staged theatrics of her Rebel Heart Tour to add a heartfelt, personal touch for her onetime hometown crowd.

The show – part of the global icon’s 10th major tour – was in support of Madonna’s 13th studio album, “Rebel Heart,” and the still-spry-at-57 megastar showed off her well-documented rebellious side from the start, opening with a salacious video of her in a sequined ball gown trapped in a cage while guards who looked like they were flown in straight from the Wicked Witch of the West’s castle marched onstage. Madonna then descended dramatically in a medieval-looking cage to perform her fun-loving new anthem “Bitch, I’m Madonna” while surrounded by sexed-up geisha girls.

Review: Madonna at AmericanAirlines Arena

irty years after her first arena tour, a live performance by Madonna is still an event, a pilgrimmage for generations of the faithful.

And so on Saturday night, they came to Miami’s AmericanAirlines Arena to worship, a parade of supplicants in search of transformation, regeneration and a party. They came in old Madonna tour T-shirts and new (“Bitch I’m Madonna), gray hair and gay hair, a parade of women defying the 56-degree chill in taut leather pants, and men in impossibly skinny jeans. There were nuns and cheerleaders,  even a random Pagliacci.  Everywhere the community documented its glee with the selfie.

And Madonna did not disappoint, her arrival (at a relatively punctual 10:25 p.m.) coming in a slow descent from the ceiling in a cage, landing among a menacing battalion of bare-chested soldiers. She exited her enclosure in flowing black and red robes to the tune of a new song, “Iconic,” as the video, featuring an angry Mike Tyson, unfurled on a massive video screen that ran the length of the stage.

It was a tone that would rule the evening: Plenty of theater, fashion and energy, and less skin than we are used to seeing from Madonna.

Madonna’s ‘Blonde Ambition’ Dancers Tell Their Own Stories in New Documentary ‘Strike a Pose’

"Strike a Pose"
Madonna and her 7 “Truth or Dare” dancers

The Panorama main program of the Berlin International Film Festival which kicks off next month, includes “Strike a Pose,” a feature documentary from Ester Gould and Reijer Zwaan, which makes it premiere at the Berlinale.

The story courtesy of the filmmakers: In 1990, seven young male dancers joined Madonna on her most controversial world tour – her “Blonde Ambition” world tour. Their journey was captured in her rockumentary, “Truth or Dare.” As a self-proclaimed “mother” to her six gay dancers plus straight Oliver, Madonna used the film to make a stand on gay rights and freedom of expression. The dancers became paragons of pride, inspiring people all over the world to dare to be who you are. Twenty-five years later, the dancers share their own stories about life during and after the tour. What does it really take to express yourself?

The feature documentary was selected for the 2014 IDFA Bertha Fund, formerly known as the Jan Vrijman Fund, which supports documentary filmmakers and festivals in developing countries. Its goal is to stimulate local film cultures and to turn the creative documentary into a truly global film art.

In January 1992, three of the “Blonde Ambition” dancers – Oliver Crumes, Kevin Stea and Gabriel Trupin – filed a lawsuit against Madonna. The suit claimed that their privacy had been invaded during the filming of “Truth or Dare.” I suppose this bit of info will be addressed in “Strike a Pose.”

The “Truth or Dare” rockumentary followed Madonna on the road, behind the scenes with her “Blonde Ambition” family of backup singers and dancers, and is still considered groundbreaking for it’s candid, matter-of-fact depiction of the private lives of her seven dancers, six of whom were gay.

No trailer yet. But it’s a film that we’ll likely be writing more about in the future, as it travels.

This year’s Berlin International Film Festival runs from February 11 – 21.
