In 1998, an ad appeared in the Wuppertal, Germany, newspaper inviting seniors with no previous acting or dancing experience to audition for parts in Pina Bausch’s revival of her 1978 performance-piece Contact Zone. What happened to the 26 people who responded to the ad and were ultimately chosen to participate is the subject of LADIES AND GENTLEMEN OVER 65, Lilo Mangelsdorff’s expertly crafted dance film full of joy and energy.
