The Luminato Festival announces the Toronto premiere of dancer/choreographer Pina Bausch’s legendary dance-theatre piece Kontakthof as part of its eighth annual Luminato Festival coming up in June 2014.
 
Pina Bausch’s original approach to theatre and dance influenced and inspired a generation of choreographers. Kontakthof is one of Tanztheater Wuppertal’s signature pieces, offering an evolving commentary on the physical interaction between men and women. Kontakthof is a towering achievement, revealing the essence of Bausch’s lifelong exploration into desire, human identity and the endless search for emotional attachment. Created in 1978, Kontakthof has been performed around the globe but has never before been seen in Toronto.
