Program 4: Teens and Pina Bausch
With the support from the Goethe Cultural Center in St. Petersburg

"New London Calling" (10 minutes, 2010, USA)
dir. Alla Kovgan
chor. Alissa Cardone and Ingird Schatz

An unsupervised tribe of 75 children take over the entire city of New London, creating their rites and rituals through playing street games. Their vibrant spirit evokes hopes for the future but also melancholy about the glorious past of children culture disappearing from the streets of American cities.

Alla Kovgan is a Moscovite sharing her life between Russia and the United States since 1996. She has made numerous award-winning films and multimedia performances. She is also a founder and the Programmer of the Kinodance Festival. "Dear Kinodance goers, because of the birth of my son, I can't be with you this year so I am sending my latest film in hope that it will warm up your hearts during the dark winter days!" - AK

"Dancing Dreams" (89 minutes, 2010, Germany)
dir. Anne Linsel and Rainer Hoffman
chor. Pina Bausch

In 2008, world-famous dancer and choreographer Pina Bausch selected 40 teenagers to be part of her dance piece "KONTAKTOFF". For 10 months through opening night, the young dancers discover Bausch’s genius and their own bodies. Pina Bausch died in 2009; a sensation at the 2010 Berlin Film Festival, "Dancing Dreams" is a testament to Bausch’s revolutionary work.

Anne Linsel is a journalist and publicist, born in Wuppertal – the home of Pina Bausch's TANZTHEATRE. She studied art, art history and literature. Since 1980s, she has been involved into the cultural programming at the German Television ZDF and WDR producing TV shows and documentaries.

For the last 40 years, Pina Bausch has been one of the most influential and controversial choreographers in the world. Her work has challenged the formalist aesthetic of modern dance, inspired many generations of dancers and choreographers, and provoked questions around gender, violence, and society.
