Rebecca Chentinell  is educated at the Royal Swedish Ballet School and the research-based master program at ArtEZ University of the Arts, the Netherlands. She lives in Gnesta but has her professional base in Stockholm.
Chentinell’s artistic practice refers to an expanded notion of choreography and explores alternative ways of working with, producing and presenting dance and choreography, and the intersection between dance and visual arts – as a choreographer, dancer, curator and editor. Through methods and processes of mediation, displacement, transformation and connection, perspectives and perceptions are challenged, both in practice and in relation to the audience.
Her work has been shown at Kummelholmen, Weld, Färgfabriken, Inter Arts Center and Moderna Museet, among other places, and through Koreografiska Konstitutet she has curated programs and festivals at the Royal Swedish Opera, Moderna Museet and Bonniers Konsthall. Together with Marie Fahlin, she runs Koreografiska Konstitutet and is the editor and responsible publisher of Koreografisk Journal (koreografiskjournal.se). Other working experience in the field include engagements in the boards of Danscentrum and Dansalliansen and in the reference group for dance at the Swedish Arts Council.
Recently, Chentinell was a studio grant holder at Iaspis / The International Dance Program. She has an ongoing interdisciplinary collaboration with Félicia Atkinson [FR] in which they gather movement, sound, text and material in an exploration of presence and interaction with our surroundings. Together with Rickard Borgström [FI], she has initiated a long-term curatorial investigation of dance and choreography’s interrelationships with visual art and its contexts, in the nearest future in collaboration with Färgfabriken in Stockholm, fall 2021, and Havremagasinet in Boden/Suttes, spring 2022.
