Pillow Pop-Up: Le Patin Libre
Jacob’s Pillow presents Montreal-based Le Patin Libre – patinage contemporain / contemporary ice skating, pioneers of ice-skating as a new artistic discipline that bring a “fresh, ice-cool take on contemporary figure skating” (London Dance).
The company presents their work “Vertical Influences,” which draws from the movement vocabularies of hip-hop, b-boying, dance theater, and ice-skating. Audience members sit on the ice with the performers as the group tries to collectively achieve a sense of harmony, realized through rhythmic footwork, moving air, and the tangible chill of the ice.
