Two years ago, world-famous dancer and choreographer Pina Bausch selected 40 teenagers who had never heard her name to be part of her dance piece Contact Zone. For 10 months through opening night, the young dancers discover Bausch's genius and their own bodies. Pina Bausch died in 2009. A sensation at the 2010 Berlin Film Festival, Dancing Dreams is a testiment to Bausch's revolutionary work.
Electrified audiences! While the film serves as a fitting elegy for Bausch, it also speaks to young people seeking creative fulfillment...a stimulating examination of the many ways in which art can give an electric charge to everyday experience. --The Hollywood Reporter
Marking the last filmed appearance of the late German dancer-choreographer Pina Bausch, the inspiring 'Dancing Dreams' illuminates the participants' emotional journey as well as the versatility of the strenuous, emotion-filled choreography. --Variety
A wonderful documentary on the power of dance as applied to community building. Pina's brilliance as an artist and choreographer shines through.
I highly recommend.
