Ageless Festival
Adults only

Christine Thynne shares her journey of passion for dance and performance, of anatomy and the kayaking adventures, which led to the development of her solo work-in-progress, Mechanisms.

Joined by friend and collaborator Robbie Synge, Christine will use a mix of film, performance and conversation to share her story. Expect a warm and lively audience discussion about creative ambition, play and finding your way...

Christine trained as a physiotherapist in the 1960’s and taught ‘Movement to Music’, anatomy and massage. She is a member of Dance Base’s PRIME performance group and has performed with a number of Scotland-based artists and companies.
