The Man Behind The Throne


Vincent Paterson is the Hollywood Choreographer who created defining moves for stars like Michael Jackson and Madonna. We follow a year in his life; In sweaty rehearsals for the Cirque du Soleil show Viva Elvis!, we see the tough work ethics, his humor and the artistic integrity that has shaped his career. He shares his private life among friends and family. Clips from his previous work, his own rehearsal footage and witty journals shape the story of an unusual artist in the commercial world.
