Vertical Influences creation - french premiere
VIRTUOSITY ON ICE FREE SKATING REVOLUTIONISES THE CODES AND CLICHES OF SHOW-BUSINESS ON ICE. DISCOVER IT FOR THE FIRST TIME IN FRANCE.
With a troupe name like Le Patin Libre, it’s clear that this artistic movement risks going into a tailspin on the ice. Since 2005, this Canadian skating company founded by Alexandre Hamel has tried to revolutionise the codes and clichés of show-business on ice. A huge gamble that’s starting to get people talking. His new performance entitled Vertical Influences tackles the theme of the survival of an individual within a group or a family. Performed by four men and one woman, all recognized skating champions, who plunge in the inner workings of a tribe connected to a contemporary spirit - virtuosity on ice with a devastating energy. Is this particularly exciting art of skating enjoying a revival? They’re unknown in France but Le Patin Libre won’t stay a secret for long.
