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 Einstein’s theory of relativity, quantum mechanics and astrophysics transformed into poetic, humorous, expressive dance. Her works convey the fun of thinking and are based on how logical thinking and deduction are expressed at different ages. Her dancers, some of them differently abled, bring the daring, skill and range needed to communicate new and mind blowing thoughts. She plays with and mixes expressions, formats and contexts from dance, musical, opera and theatre.
