Unfair comparison with Wenders' luminous evocation of Bausch and her art, Pina. By contrast, Dancing Dreams is more of a study of a specific creation --Kontakthof --as experienced and rehearsed by a group of thoughtful young people. Whereas Wenders' Pina finds a filmic equivalent for Bausch's sinuous melancholy, Dancing Dreams reveals more of the workaday aspects of her choreographic methods. This is especially true as Bausch herself appears only briefly, towards the end. The true standard bearers for Bausch's techniques are Benedictine and especially Jo, rehearsal directors who teach, demonstrate and coach the teenagers of the film.

Totally recommend! Better than Wender's film on Bausch.

It was somewhat interesting to watch a bunch of teenagers become comfortable learning the roles that they were being asked to perform. It's a lowkey DVD perfect for a quiet day.
