In the 1990s, there was a wave of popular culture that set off a boom all over the world.
Dazzling neon lights, ingenious clothing, unconventional shapes...
So in this context, a dance called voguing was born!
voguing, also known as model dance, inspired by the famous American fashion magazine "Vogue".
mainly models The shape or posture of Madonna is a dance formed by linear and steady body movements.
In that year, Madonna released the solo single "vogue", Topped the music charts in more than 30 countries around the world and won the annual bestSelling singles, swept the world overnight.
This song is inspired by Voguing perfectly sums up the cultural essence of Ballroom(Dance Hall), and at the same time successfully put Voguing into the field of pop culture.p>
This same year, a documentary called "Paris Is Burning" not only pushed Voguing to the top of the world, but also Uncovered the unknown hardships of "special people".
If you like dancing, you have a certain pursuit of art. So today this drama will open the door to a new world for you:
Compared with the black and white posters of the second season, I personally think that the posters of the first season Be bolder and more unrestrained.
The theme of the whole play can be summarized by three key words, that is: live , work (waves up), pose (with attitude).
Turn life into art, only he can do it in Hollywood, where the crowds are competing.
Ryan Murphy , goodThe title selection king of Lywood, the most talented director, producer and screenwriter in the American drama circle.
Most of his works are restricted subjects, and there are two very obvious characteristics: "large scale" and "heavy taste".
But every work has a very high reputation and ratings.
"Plastic Surgery Room" brought him the Golden Globe honor; "American Horror Story" even made him famous and fortune Close; "Glee" has set off a pop music frenzy around the world; "Rivals: Joan and Betty" takes the audience to relive popular Hollywood topics; "American Crime Story" restores the most real cases.
Even Ryan Murphy himself admits that his plays are all Freaks"Freaks".
The story of "Position" is no exception, telling the life of a special group of people who are obsessed with voguing.
New York in the 1990s was popular with dance hall culture.
There are colorful publicity and unrestrainedness, but also hides shameful oppression and shame.
The mainstream society at that time did not have enough tolerance. Therefore, a group of people were reduced to "lower citizens" in the society and could only survive in the cracks.
This group of people is called "transgender", which is similar to "women's ladies", but is fundamentally different.
They are not "steel straight men" deliberately grandstanding to gain attention, but they cannot identify with their inherent gender and believe that they should be A category of people belonging to another gender.
It is said that when Ryan Murphy was preparing for the show "Pose", 150 transgender actors appeared.
The story of the first season unfolds as a "Ball". It revolves around the battle between the House of Abundance and the House of the Preacher, showing a relationship with reality Life in a different world.
In fact, the "prom" is a huge competition. Held once a week, the competition is scored by professional judges.
Here, this group of people can temporarily get rid of the prejudice of identity, use the most dazzling costumes and elegant dances, show themselves to the fullest, and gain the impossible in the outside world Compliments received.
Film and television dramasHis usual routine is to give you a subtitle to tell you the age and background.
However, "Posture" got rid of this step and directly takes you into the underground realm, facing the lives of a group of people of color.
In that era, the living environment of LGBTQ groups and people of color was as bad as a mouse crossing the street.
People equate "HIV" with them, so this group of people has to live a life of "Wish we disappear soon" Environment.
As the plot progresses, the characters of the fairy tale version have a dramatic conflict in the face of cruel reality—the collision of two worlds.p>
Stan, a middle-class white man, has a house, a car, a family and a career.
Almost a winner in life, only a little bit of himself is missing.
So when he met a beautiful, confident and elegant "girl" Angel, I completely fell in love with her.
However, after Stan learned her identity, she couldn’t accept it at all. He could only chat with Angel in bed, Talk about life.
The issue of Stan’s sexual orientation in the play has always No clear answer was given.
But one thing is certain, he really loves Angel, but not the kind of true love.
Even if Angel’s request is simple, she only needs someone who can take care of her.
But Stan can’t do it. He dared not face the three mainstream views alone, and wanted to take this love as his own.
So from the beginning, this love was destined to be fruitless!
Speaking of which, I have to involve Another topic.
A piece called "Every"120 Hits in Minutes" was nominated for the Palme d’Or at the Cannes International Film Festival. Its theme is similar to "Position", but it looks much cruel.
There is a line in it, Seven Brother has always remembered deeply:
"If an ordinary person His heartbeat is 60 beats, so LGBT needs 120 beats per minute. Because only 120 beats per minute can you survive without being trampled!"
In the play, the 17-year-old Damon is an ineffective sissy and a sinner against faith in the eyes of his parents.
My father found a male adult magazine under his bed and drove him out of the house in a fit of anger, completely severing the relationship.
This kid has to wander around, if it wasn't for Blanca who discovered his dancing daysFu, maybe Damon was buried.
So with the help of Blanca, he entered a formal dance academy and finally witnessed the blooming of a genius.
These stories look exactly like a fairy tale , And in line with TongThe characteristics of speech, but it is completely different from the outside world.
That’s why the director gave this show such a domineering and profound name-"Position".
As if to announce to the world:
The more you suppress, the more I want Take a pose and live out your true self for you!
Everyone has their own spiritual corner. If you don’t like it, just laugh it off, why bother for unity.
Only closer The true self, the spotlight of life will shine.
Cheer up and work harder. Victory is not today, it may be tomorrow!
