The documentary explores the life and work of choreographer Pina Bausch while showing her company perform some of her most notable creations. The new film concept includes, in addition to excerpts from the four productions of “Café Müller,” “Le Sacre du printemps,” “Vollmond” and “Kontakthof,” carefully selected archive footage of Pina Bausch at work, with many short solo performances by the dancers of the ensemble. WimWenders used Pina Bausch’s own method of “questioning” with which the choreographer developed her new productions. She posed questions and her dancers answered not in words, but with improvised dance and body language.
