SATURDAY APRIL 20TH - 17:00
Anyone interested is invited to come over and join us for a tea in a living room. At first, it might look like an ordinary invitation to meet and experience something we all are quite accustomed to. But, as guests start to settle in, they may realize that something peculiar is going on.
In between the real and the surreal, this performance and social event aims to explore all the different emotions, which arise when something as pleasant as, precisely, Tea Time, turns into a strange meeting with people that have never met before.
Benjamin grew up in Stockholm, Sweden. He has a background in hip-hop and contemporary dance, and a bachelor degree from The Norwegian College of Dance, Oslo. Since April 2018 he lives and works mainly in Switzerland, creating and collaborating in various projects. Currently, he dances for Tabea Martin's new creation - "Forever".
Rebecca Weingartner studied contemporary dance at Zürich Tanztheaterschule, at Artez Dance Academy Arnhem, as well as Physical Theatre at the Amsterdam University of Arts. She collaborates with artists such as Martin Schick, ADN Dialect/ Angelo Iacono, Collectif Inouits in different choreograpich settings. Rebecca Weingartner and Benjamin Lindh started working together one year ago. They have performed together in "Decadence" by ADN Dialect/ Angelo Iacono at Performa Festival 2018 and "Hors ville 2, le noir est une valeur", a swiss-tunisian collaboration at Festival International de Hammamet 2018 in Tunisia under the artistic direction of Filippo Armati and Bahri Ben Yahmed.
