Event Details

A Kay Meek Speaker Presentation
Speaker: Michael van den Bos
McEwen Theatre

Sexy, sassy and snazzy describe the dynamic dance work of choreographer, stage and film director BOB FOSSE, one of the most important and influential figures in 20th century American dance. Bob Fosse’s vivacious approach to choreography on stage and in film, along with his cinematic techniques, are the subjects of this presentation by classic film scholar and movie musical maven, MICHAEL VAN DEN BOS. This entertaining evening looks at all that Fosse flirtatious flash, steam heat and razzle dazzle—as primarily seen in the movies—including his few onscreen appearances in 1950s Hollywood musicals; his work with his wife and muse, the extraordinaire dancer Gwen Verdon; his behind-the-camera choreography for the big screen adaptations of his Broadway shows; and his years directing stylish, mature musical films, including the Oscar-winning CABARET starring Liza Minnelli and Fosse’s own semi-autobiographical ALL THAT JAZZ, featuring the atomic Ann Reinking.
