Marking the 30th anniversary of its New York debut at BAM, Tanztheater Wuppertal Pina Bausch returns to Brooklyn with one of its beloved founder’s seminal dance-theater works. A seductive tête-à-tête with all the awkward tension of a high school dance, Kontakthof (which translates as “courtyard of contact”) is Bauschian wit and sensuality writ large. Two dozen men and women, dressed to the nines, assemble in a dance hall and jockey for affection. Preening and parading around to popular songs from the 1930s, they caress, tease, and flirt with one another, acting out the universal agony and ecstasy of our courtship rituals.

Venue Description: A multi-arts center located in Brooklyn, offering theater, dance, music, opera, film, and more from emerging artists and innovative modern masters.
