Le Patin Libre

Montreal, QC

Vertical Influences (2014)
Choreography: Alexandre Hamel, Pascale Jodoin, Samory Ba, Jasmin Boivin, Taylor Dilley

Contemporary skating company Le Patin Libre uses virtuosic glide in Vertical Influences. Part I, ‘Influences,’ explores the relationship between individuals and groups. Moving through the tension of leadership, bullying, individualism, and rivalry, a group evolves towards harmony. In Part II, ‘Vertical,’ the audience moves to seating on the ice, where the skaters exhilarate with intensity and high-speed glide. The former competitive skaters of the company ditched the sequins to explore the potential of glide for choreographic expression. Join the company for a skating after party complete with DJ and lights! (Skates will be available at no charge).
