MADONNA DANCE - A - LONG was an effort to creatively enhance the actual cinematic experience. The screening of the documentery Truth or dare? was presented along with live dance routines mimicking the ones on the screen and creating a magical live 3D experience.

This experience was not only for Madonna fans, but also for anybody who could see it with "..an open heart and an open mind..". Profits from the show were donated to LGBTQI+ Refugees in Greece group.
