Rebecca Weingartner receives culture award for dance 2021

bl.png

Rebecca Weingartner is honored by the government of Canton Baselland the culture award for dance 2021. Weingartner has established an independent stage language which is expressed through intersectional dance and theater. Rebecca Weingartner's artistic language developed from her encounters with people from diverse backgrounds with whom she has worked in her artistic, educational and dance therapy projects - from children and young people to people with cognitive or psychological impairments. The awareness of structural disadvantages in the context of her previous works, as well as Rebecca Weingartner's own experience as a woman*, person of color and person affected by classism, are the core of her current artistic exploration.

Coming up soon: SOLIDARITY!

After EQUALITY!, a dance piece about gender equality for young audiences, choreographer Rebecca Weingartner wants to continue her work for young audiences at Theater Roxy. The idea for SOLIDARITY! matured during the time of the pandemic, when each individual had to adapt its behavior for the good of all.

 

Two dancers and a musician meet. Their biographies are as complex as they are different, but all three of them have experienced the feeling of not belonging. On stage, they overcome physical limits together. In order to succeed, they need active support - from each other and from the audience. They form a choir of moving bodies, a sounding, crashing, singing ensemble that makes itself heard for hidden stories. They tell stories of origin and identity, of visible and invisible differences and of the desire for togetherness.

 

A dance piece for everyone from age 8 and up.
