Even though my mother was a dancer, I had a hard time appreciating dance until the past few years. This new film by Wim Wenders, a tribute to choreographer Pina Bausch, looks like something that will affirm my interest in the medium.
The dance performance, Kontakthof, bears the unmistakable signature of Pina Bausch: it deals with forms of human contact, the encounters between the sexes, and the search for love and tenderness with all the attendant anxieties, yearnings and doubts. It is about feelings, which poses a big challenge. Particularly for young people.
