“The wonderfully fresh and inventive quintet of bearded, dreadlocked, baggy-jeaned dancers spark with movement ideas that I’ve never seen on ice before, let alone on stage.” —The Guardian
Former championship figure skaters turned movement innovators, this Montreal-based group invites you onto the ice for a kinetic experience of exhilarating inventiveness. The joyously engaging performers pull off vertiginous spins, tap and hip-hop footwork, and spiraling arabesques in daring, dazzling ways. With exceptional lighting and sound design, Le Patin Libre’s performance showers audiences with elation.
Both days include an excerpt of Tracing Steps, a new work by Twin Cities–based Brownbody, which the ensemble describes as “Black social dances from centuries of slavery in America that are translated to the ice.” Tickets to the Brownbody performances are available here.
Join us at the rink to experience two unique perspectives of contemporary performance on ice.
Warm coats, hats, and gloves are highly recommended.
