The dance first hit the mainstream with Madonna's 1990 song and video "Vogue," in which the singer lists a roll call of all-white Hollywood icons -- Marilyn Monroe, James
Dean, Grace Kelly, and Bette Davis -- while calling on people to "strike a pose."
Chronicling the artist's fascination with 50s and 60s American iconography, Mars's work depicts popular consumer goods and architectural and mechanical icons of the era, alongside striking portraits of bygone celebrities such as Marilyn Monroe, James
Dean, and Audrey Hepburn.
Classic images of Marilyn Monroe, James
Dean and other stars of the Hollywood studio era still circulate and are recognizable to generations born long after the stars have died.
Fun features included a movie-style photobooth, face masks of Hollywood icons including Marilyn Monroe, James
Dean and Audrey Hepburn for guests, a popcorn stand with nine different flavours, a cinema-style ice cream attendant and a candyfloss station.
Dance pieces include tap, jazz and contemporary performed by impersonators of stars such as Marilyn Monroe, James
Dean, Veronica Lake, Marlene Dietrich, Audrey Hepburn and more.
