The trailer of ‘The Rule of 3′
An excerpt of the piece.
- Contemporary skating is a new form of performance art using the glide and acrobatics of virtuoso skating artists. Miles away from the spins and sparkles of traditional figure skating.
- The Rule of 3 explores the twisted psychology of three young men following a therapy to get rid of a strange addiction. The piece is an heartfelt ode to the beauty of the strange, to the grace of the wounded and to the victory of the extraordinary over the banal. It is performed by pioneering and world class skating-artists dedicated to the emergence of the form.
- Alexandra Palace features one of the world’s most beautiful ice rink. It is set up in a Victorian hall. It is perfect for the redefinition of skating as a performance art. The People’s Palace maintained most of its Victorian chic and is a venue to be discovered.
The After-party: after the performance, all our spectators are invited to put skates on to come party and dance with us on our stage. The performance ends at about 6:45pm. Until 8:15pm, local urban ice dancers, the artists of Le Patin Libre, figure skaters and first-time gliders will revel together on the sounds of DJ JBee. Alexandra Palace will rent skates for 2£.
