Reviews

In 2008, world-famous dancer and choreographer Pina Bausch selected 40 teenagers who had never heard of her to be part of the dance performance ‘A Place to Make Contact’ (Kontakthof). They spent the next ten months falling in love with dance and discovering the work of Pina Bausch.
 
Pina Bausch died in 2009. This film is a testimony to her revolutionary work and the impact she has had on the contemporary dance movement.

This educational project makes the most wonderful film, as long as you are interested in dance ... The teenagers who are involved in the rehearsals seem to develop so much in terms of confidence and sensitivity over the ten months, and we get to see them in interview and understand how the experience might fit into the broader picture of their lives. We also see Pina Bausch and others training them with great dedication and empathy, and the amount of humour also suggests the benefit of working on something you love. I was amazed by these young people, their seriousness and their integrity, both in rehearsals and in terms of what we see outside; they are daring to face their emotions and to try to articulate different things in ways that require a certain courage, and they give one hope that not all is lost for future generations after all, as long as there are some people growing up with this kind of openness in their hearts. The piece, Kontakthof, is one I have seen bits of in the film Pina, but I have never seen it in its entirety, sadly - it seems like a fascinating piece, full of humour and bold, brilliant ideas. If you've seen and enjoyed Pina, this is a marvellous way to see that piece worked up from scratch.

-For those who have enjoyed this ,may i point them toward seeing another Pina dvd entiltled 'Kontakthof' and subtitled'with ladies and gentlemen 'over 65' - which makes an interesting counterpoint to the youngsters in 'Dancing Dreams' -as their minds and bodies have all been 'lived in', rather than the amazing freshness,trials and joy of discovery in young people....Thought provoking on various levels and helps round-off her view of 'being human'.

trully great work- describes the process of rehearsing Kontakthof with teenagers,
although Pina only appears from time to time, through her dancers you can get a very clear image of her work.

It's amazing to see the changes in this bunch of teenagers over the course of the film. I suppose it's best to sum it up as 'Confidence through Dance'

An interesting account of workshops supervised by Pina Bausch, which show the range and quality of dance under her guidance.
It was fascinating to see young people without experience being organised into sophisticated and successful routines.
