Fall Photos: Le Patin Libre: Vertical Influences

On Sunday, October 15, 2017 at the Spurrier-Snyder Rink, Le Patin Libre made their Connecticut debut with Vertical Influences (2014), a double bill which examines themes of leadership, bullying, individualism, and rivalry with the audience seated on the ice during the second half of the performance, up close as the five skaters perform. The Montréal-based company challenges expectations about ice shows, combining the attitude of street dance with the athleticism of competitive skating, all while exploring the choreographic possibilities of the human body gliding on ice.
