These Mechanisms

Christine Thynne + Robbie Synge
  • Dance

In her eightieth year, Christine wondered if she might create her first dance performance.

With intrepid and joyous spirit, These Mechanisms is just that. This is a performance of persistence, journeying through weird and wonderful situations that bring body, materials and sound together in complex but fundamental ways. It celebrates the beautiful functions and limits of a human body and the desire to make things happen. Led by play and curiosity and with infectious personality, we are likely to encounter the banal to the jaw-dropping. This is real, and what happens along the way we can’t be sure. Nor can Christine, such is the nature of These Mechanisms.

These Mechanisms is part of a progressive collaboration spanning over a decade between Christine Thynne and Robbie Synge, including group performance Ensemble (Aerowaves; Made In Scotland Showcase and Total Theatre Awards Shortlisted, 2018).
