Event Details

Excerpt of Mechanisms by Christine Thynne and Workshop | 2.30-4.00pm


Mechanisms is a work-in-progress which boldly embodies ideas of effort and persistence, success and failure, visibility and joy. Drawing on knowledge of anatomy and physical practices in dance and kayaking,
Christine playfully constructs and situates herself within a precarious structure of hard and fluid materials to build an environment of complex environmental interaction.

This short excerpt of Mechanisms is followed by a physical workshop and Q&A. We will playfully develop dances and actions together, thinking about body architecture and its desires and possibilities. Expect experimentation, physical play, discovery and simple joy.
