DANCING DREAMS is a feature documentary that celebrates the work of world-famous, visionary choreographer Pina Bausch, who selected 40 teenagers to be part of her dance piece Contact Zone.
Capturing the hearts of the dancers themselves, DANCING DREAMS follows them through ten months of challenging rehearsals, from their first attempts at expressing themselves in movement through to the long-awaited Opening Night.
Pina Bausch died shortly after the film was completed, making it a testament to the genius of one of ballet's greats.
