Power-charged skating that seems to suspend the normal laws of movement and stretch time. Le Patin Libre defy every convention of figure skating to create a new dance form – on ice.
In ‘Threshold’ the charismatic ensemble experiments with the choreographic possibilities of ‘the glide’ – a state that allows the body to travel motionless at speed through space. Playing with contrast and change, they zoom towards viewers seated on the ice, combining athletic virtuosity with joyous physicality. The Montreal-based company last wowed audiences here in Inverness in 2015 with their award-winning ‘Vertical Influences’.
A co-production with Dance North and Eden Court.
