Threshold – Le Patin Libre
Effortlessly engaging, their exhilarating movement characterised by pure invention, the quintet of Le Patin Libre defy every convention of figure skating to create a new dance form – on ice.
In Threshold the charismatic ensemble experiments with the choreographic possibilities of ‘the glide’ – a state that allows the body to travel at speed through space, without moving. Playing with contrast and change, they zoom towards viewers seated on the ice, combining athletic virtuosity with joyous physicality.
The Montreal-based company last wowed audiences here in Inverness in 2015 with their award-winning Vertical Influences.
Hire skates and join the dancers on the ice for the after-show party following the 7pm performances (skate hire is an additional £5.00).
Please note the audience watches the show from two identical sections at either end of the rink.
