Le Patin Libre (Back)

Le Patin Libre is an ice-skating performance company whose work has been described as contemporary dance on ice. Most of the artists in this choreographic creation collective have lengthy, high-level training in figure skating; they re-appropriated this virtuosity to turn it into a legitimate artistic medium, open to experimentation and completely free of the pastiches and stereotypes of “stars-on-ice” productions.

Besides showcasing works in neighbourhood arenas for local and international dance presenters, the artists of Le Patin Libre continue to perform at winter carnivals and in the popular shows that launched them on their adventurous path more than ten years ago. By participating in such events and through numerous original cultural mediation initiatives, the company plays a role in the building of a necessary bridge between contemporary art and audiences for whom skating rinks feel more accessible than theatres.
