Coffee with Pina - A film with the choreographer Pina Bausch.


Coffee with Pina is a film that refuses to adhere to conventions. It is not fiction, yet it is not quite documentary, either. More than anything else, this film is a study of documentation, memory and experience. This film creates a stream of consciousness that immerses the viewer in beauty, strength and an intense joie de vivre. Within these one can find a rare ingredient that can be defined as realistic optimism.

Kontakthof with Ladies and Gentlemen over 65


When Pina Bausch revived her seminal 1978 dance piece in 2000, she opted to use a cast of seniors, previously untrained in stage dancing, with stunning, if sometimes uncomfortable results. The piece is set in a dance hall, with the participants preparing for an encounter and hoping to find love. Against a background of sentimental German songs of the 1930s, jazz, and tangos, the performers, all aged between 65 and 75, enact mating rituals and sexual frenzy apparently more suited to those less than half their ages.
