Festival, Tojo Theater Bern, Castrum Festival Yverdon-les-Bains. EQUALITY! is currently on tour.

In Rebecca Weingartner's new project for young audience SOLIDARITY! a musician and two dancers seek to overcome physical boundaries despite their diverse cultural and professional backgrounds. 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. 

SOLIDARITY! is the second piece after EQUALITY! as part of a triology examining the three main principles of the French Enlightment slogan "Egalité! Solidarité!* Liberté!"

*Solidarity as the gender-neutral term for the french term of brotherhood "fraternité".

​Company Lindh & Weingartner's work is state subsidized by the cultural committee of Canton Basel and Baselland.

Rebecca Weingartner received the culture award 2021 from the government of Canton Baselland, Switzerland. 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.
