More about the show

Accessible and enjoyable for families.  A perfect initiation to contemporary performing arts.

In 2014, Vertical Influences was rated amongst the 10 dance events of the year in the United Kingdom.  It then won the Total Theatre & The Place Award for Dance.

Le Patin Libre joins the virtuosity of liberated high-level figure skaters with the poetry of contemporary dance.  As described by a reviewer, it’s like “the attitude and energy of street dance with all the speed and elegance of a flock of birds”.  That’s exactly how we feel.

This double-bill first lets the audience witness the tensions and the coming-together of a group of individuals fearlessly fighting for the recognition of their uniqueness (Influences).
Then, the audience will be moved to seats on the ice.  Spectators will live an intense scenic experience a few inches away from a joyful bunch of cheeky skating virtuosos.  This essay shines a special light on the unparalleled choreographic possibilities of glide (Vertical).


A party after the show?
On March 12th and 19th, after the show, the audience will be invited to join the artists on the rink for an ice-dancing party. Bring your skates or rent some affordably (4$). Or, just take a warmth drink while watching this little craze.
Total beginners are more than welcome!
The artists will propose a playful ice-dancing initiation.
