Cinedans in collaboration with Goethe Institut presents Dancing Dreams.

In 2008, one year before her death, legendary choreographer Pina Bausch assembled 40 German teenagers for a unique staging of one of her most iconic dance works, the complex and intimate Kontakthof, created in 1978. In this fly-on-the-wall documentary, none of the teenagers had any previous training. Nonetheless, they show tremendous guts performing this intimate, sometimes excruciatingly raw piece. With energetic fighting and flirting the stage becomes a battlefield of the sexes.

This documentary is an account of the 10 months of rehearsal that proceeded the first performance at Tanztheater Wuppertal. It's a discreet yet revealing look at Pina’s methods and at a likeable group of dedicated young people.

Anyone who likes Pina will want to see it!

A group of people emerges from the water. They try to work against the current of the river and the crowd of people in the city, but surrender to the flow and are washed ashore. Going with the flow or against it, resistance and devotion manifest as a basic instinct. A strategy of survival.
