Création le 9 décembre 1978, à l’Opéra de Wuppertal

Pina Bausch (1940-2009) is one of the great artists of the 20th century, creating around fifty ballets and operas, establishing a company in Wuppertal and shaping a choreographic style known as tanztheater (dance theatre). One of her masterpieces is Kontakthof, a universal piece that has transcended time since it premiered in 1978. In a large municipal hall filled with chairs, women in coloured satin dresses and men in sharp suits congregate for a dance. All dressed to the nines, they show themselves off in their best light to seduce. Their parade reveals male-female relationships, rivalries and jealousies, erotic desire and disgust, an unquenchable desire for tenderness, protection and attention, distress and solitude, gentleness and violence in a series of scenes regulated like a mechanism that sometimes stumbles, sometimes gets carried away. Ferocious but empathetic, old-fashioned and still current, Kontakthof leaves an indelible mark on your memory like a bittersweet ritornello continually retracing its steps.
