Rebecca Weingartner receives culture award for dance 2021
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.
