Ice skating - but not as we know it!
Amidst the spins and sequins of figure skating, and the macho world of ice hockey, a group of irreverent, yet world class, ice skaters have turned away from more traditional “On Ice” entertainment in order to develop their own artistic and acrobatic performance style. Founded on the frozen ponds of Montreal in 2005, Le Patin Libre (The Free Skate) presents their highlights performance featuring contemporary ice skating in scenes more dynamic, original and funny then you’ve ever seen at an ice rink before.
After each show, the audience is invited to join the coolest skaters in town in a not-to-be-missed ice dancing party. Great fun guaranteed - everyone welcome, especially clumsy first timers! (Affordable skate rental available)
Created and performed by Le Patin Libre: Alexandre Hamel, Pascale Jodoin, Samory Ba, Taylor Dilley, Jasmin Boivin
