About

In few words:

Designed around the programming of the Ballet, the "Choreographers, My Parents and I", workshops led by dancer Louis Combeaud, provide a sensitive approach to dance. The families who take part in the workshops will be able to understand the artist's approach through the practice of dance. These practical artistic workshops allow for a better appreciation of the shows and to fully enter the artist's universe.

For this workshop, Louis Combeaud invites to a dancing discovery of one of Pina Bausch's major masterpiece, Kontakthof, with your family.

KONTAKTHOF

In the wake of The Rite of Spring and Orpheus and Eurydice, Kontakthof is Pina Bausch’s third piece to enter the repertoire of the Paris Opera Ballet. In it we find all the elements that characterise this German choreographer: love, angst, violence, desire, sadness and also considerable humour.

Passing on Kontakthof

By Antony Desvaux, Thida Thongsoume

Jo Ann Endicott joined Pina Bausch in 1973 when the latter founded her Tanztheater Wuppertal company. Today Jo Ann is the artistic rehearsal director working with the company's dancers to bring Kontakthof into the Opera Ballet's repertoire.

She relates the work’s creative process, in which she participated in 1978, and the multitude of contrasting feelings that form its subject. Dedicated to passing on Pina Bausch's work, Jo Ann Endicott discusses the way she shares her experience with the Opera Ballet's dancers.
