★★★★½ Joyful, uplifting, creative, and inspiring.

Choreographers ALEXANDRE HAMEL, PASCALE JODOIN, SAMORY BA, JASMIN BOIVIN & TAYLOR DILLEY

The subversive wit of street dance and the technical virtuosity of contemporary movement make a fine cocktail, but you’ve just got to try it on ice.

Five performers turn their backs on sequins and scorecards in favour of adrenaline-pumping athletics and theatrical sophistication. The breathtaking momentum of the skating body combined with the freedom of the choreographic imagination results in forms untethered by gravity, like lightning over a frozen lake.

Canada’s Le Patin Libre is the only company in the world to realise the possibilities opened up to contemporary dance when a pair of ice-skates enters the frame. The results will exhilarate.
