Threshold

Le Patin Libre

A contemporary reinvention of iceskating shows, Le Patin Libre sharpens its blades once again for a frosty new opus. Dizziness guaranteed.

With years of practice at the highest level of so-called “artistic” skating, the members of Patin Libre caused a sensation in 2014 by unveiling Vertical Influences , an ice choreography heir to the major trends in contemporary dance. "We enjoy what makes skating unique and legitimate as an artistic medium: gliding. The dancers and acrobats all have to walk, run, tumble, jump. We can go at high speed without moving at all!", summarizes Alexandre Hamel. Seeing Le Patin Libre evolve so fast is dizzying. “We use speed to write our choreographic poetry." Bringing together the same team – Pascale Jodoin, Jasmin Boivin, Taylor Dilley, Samory Ba and Alexandre Hamel, without forgetting the playwright Ruth Little – Le Patin Libre defies gravity once again. Threshold is a choreographic exploration of a crucial moment of change and danger. It is both accessible through its athletic virtuosity and meaningful through its reflections on trauma, transformation and the return to life.
