Kontakthof

DR
Théâtre de la Ville, The Marais Friday June 21 2013 19:30

A Pina Bausch show in Paris is like an unmissable ritual. Season after season for the last 30 years, the Théâtre de la Ville has put on one of her pieces – and though Bausch herself is no more, her shows are still sell-outs. It seems certain that ‘Kontakthof’ will be no different, especially given the reputation that precedes it. Created in 1978 and danced twice by junior and senior troupes, the show was filmed by Anne Linsel and Rainer Hoffman for their 2012 documentary on Bausch. In it, a series of short scenes speak of meetings, the body and seduction; subtle choreography that explores the relationships between men and women.
