  • Event Overview
    • Le Patin Libre – Threshold

      Effortlessly engaging, their exhilarating movement characterised by pure invention, the quintet of Le Patin Libre defy every convention of figure skating to evolve 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 London audiences in Dance Umbrella 2014 with their award-winning Vertical Influences (recently seen on BBC2). Dance Umbrella brings the collective’s latest show to the capital, with another adrenalin-fuelled performance of gravity-defying grace and danger.

      Please contact Georgia Heighway on 0207 257 9380 or email to discuss access requirements and to purchase an access ticket.

      Please note the audience watches the show from two identical sections (A & B) at either end of the rink. Site lines are the same from both ends.
