Le Patin Libre doesn’t put on your typical figure-skating exhibition. Named after the French phrase for “the free skate,” the Canadian collective was created in 2005 by former high-level figure skaters. The troupe ditched the glitz and glam of competitive skating and channeled their athleticism into expressive works of contemporary dance on ice. Sport, play and art meet in their program “Vertical Influences,” which explores relationships between individuals and groups through a compelling blend of modern dance, hip-hop, breakdance and professional skating. Spectators are seated on the rink for the performance that the Guardian calls “a pure body rush of liberation and space.” Brrrring it on!
