Description

Le Patin Libre is a contemporary ice skating company from Montreal. This performing art uses ice, skates and glide as medias. Some people see our work as a form of “contemporary dance on ice”. The first collective was founded in 2005 by ex high-level figure skaters. They regrouped with the intention of transforming their athleticism into a mean of free expression. Far from sparkles, stereotypes and champions’ demos, the creations of Le Patin Libre propose real works of art exploiting the amazing choreographic and theatrical potential of glide. Since 2005 and its first demonstrations on frozen ponds, Le Patin Libre evolved a lot. What started as a little spontaneous explosion is now refined into an intelligent artistic project. “The new skating style” slowly became a new performance art form in its own right. At the base of our work, there is one great question: “what is skating?” Until now, our research projects always bring us back to the same thing: glide. Glide is the possibility to imprint movement on immobile bodies. It is the uniqueness of our dance. It is the magic we play with, until it becomes a vertigo, for our own enjoyment and the one of our public.
