Rebecca Weingartner is a performer, choreographer, teacher and Rolfing practitioner, born in Seoul and based in Basel. She studied contemporary dance at Tanztheaterschule Zürich and the ARTez dance academy Arnhem in the Netherlands as well as physical theater and academy of arts in Amsterdam.
She danced among others at the dance company Theater St.Gallen, Compagnie Tabea Martin, Cie. 7273, Cie. Anna Röthlisberger. Her own choreographic works include THE BEST IS YET TO COME (2012), HOPE INSTRUCTION (2015), WIR SIND VIELE (2019) & EQUALITY! (2020).
Together with Benjamin Lindh Medin, she founded the company for young audience Lindh & Weingartner in 2019.
Rebecca Weingartner is awarded the 2021 Dance Prize of Canton of Baselland. 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.
