On A World Tour With Madonna

Those lucky enough to attend a performance on Madonna's current "Drowned World" tour can be forgiven if they denote some Indonesian "touches" in the superstar's stage performance.

Included in the troupe of talented dancers who share the stage with the American musical phenomenon is the 29 year old Indonesian dancer-choreographer Eko Supriyanto. The Lady Madonna's insistence on sharing the stage with only the very best dancers meant that after being selected to audition for the coming tour, Eko had to compete with no less than 300 other professional dancers before being finally selected.

Resident in the U.S.A. for the past 3 year, Eko Supriyanto is a graduate in dance from the Solo (Central Java) School of Fine Arts (STSI) as well as graduating in choreography and dance in the Department of World Arts and Culture at the University of California. He has since studied intensive modern dance technique, improvisation, teaching methods, and choreography with Angelia Leung, Victoria Marks, Simone Forti, Nina Martin, and David Rousseve at UCLA. As a performer and choreographer, he has worked across Indonesia, Japan, Europe, and the United States. In addition to a busy schedule of solo and group dance exhibitions and performances, he has worked as a dance consultant for the stage production of The Lion King.

During the current world tour with Madonna, Eka dances virtually non-stop for 24 songs, including several dramatic dance duets with Madonna. The Indonesian dancer, who has won awards for two year running at the Dance Festival of America, is the key participant in a "Geisha" segment of the show which culminates with Madonna shooting Eko who dances the role of the Superstar's alter ego.

An occupational hazard for any dancer who shines too bright on the same stage with the 42 year-old material girl?
