Christina Tingskog

Christina Tingskog’s performances are appreciated for their wit, warmth, audience interaction and compelling physicality. She challenges her young audiences with topics beyond the usual, for example quantum mechanics, astrophysics and ways of logical thinking transformed into poetic, humorous, expressive dance. Starting 2018 she works with norm creative themes and formats for young audiences as another expression of thought structures and strategies. Her dancers, some of them differently abled, bring the daring, skill and range needed to communicate new and mind blowing thoughts. Christina plays with and mixes expressions, formats and contexts from dance, musical, opera and theatre and she has created works for different venues like Young at the Opera at the Royal Opera in Stockholm (2016), Science festivals as well as for small and big stages all over Sweden.
