You must know Kevin Stea from Madonna’s movie Truth or Dare. He was one of Madonna’s backup dancers! I definitely remember him as the sole Asian face on that tour. Kevin is Chinese and Welsh Madonna’s movie really was the beginning of reality tv which exposed backup dancers and behind the scenes of a worldwide tour to the general population. Madonna constantly mentions “my dancers” throughout the film!
Kevin went on to choreograph and dance for Michael Jackson, Prince, Ricky Martin, Janet Jackson, George Michael, David Bowie, Celine Dion, Macy Gray, Pussycat Dolls.
Now he is performing in an Indie Rock Ballet based upon J.T. Horenstein’s (choreographer) experience while serving on a jury for a 1st degree murder trial. It is a full length, story-driven theatre piece, entirely danced to a progressive, independent rock score. Horenstein is
the director and choreographer of this dynamic, entirely
original idea, leading twenty-six dancers through this dark journey of murder and intrigue. THE QUESTION plays for these dates only: March 9th, 11th, 12th, 16th (Gala Evening), 18th, and 19th at 8 PM, at the historic Ricardo Montalban Theatre, the West Coast home of Nike Sportswear, 1615 North Vine Street,Hollywood, CA 90028. Please Call Tel: 323- 962-7000 ext.19 for your reservations.
