"Rehearsal Director." Now there's a new term on me. The two rehearsal directors are Josephine Ann Endicott and Bénédiete Billiet. They're in a dance hall, in Wuppertal, Germany, working with a large group of adolescents from more than 11 schools, teaching them a dance. But Billiet and Endicott didn't write the dance, I mean choreograph the dance. That was done by a lady named Pina Bausch who is, like, this world-famous dancer and choreographer who died in 2009. Bausch is in this movie, evaluating, helping, and teaching the dancers, but not all the time. Endicott and Billiet do almost all the teaching work.
This three-women producing/directing team is teaching these teenagers how to do this dance -- one which has been performed around the world for decades. Some of the kids have never danced before. I'm not sure how or why the team chose non-dancers, but I readily admit it makes the whole thing kinda more interesting -- especially considering this dance, called "Kontakthof", is something about how people connect with each other.Read more ›
