Le Patin Libre is a contemporary ice skating company from Montreal, originally founded in 2005 by ex high-level figure skaters. They regrouped with the intention of transforming their athleticism into a means of free expression. Far from sparkles, stereotypes and champions’ demos, the creations of Le Patin Libre propose real works of art exploiting the amazing choreographic and theatrical potential of glide.
In Carte Blanche, Le Patin Libre’s founders share the essence of their contemporary skating: glide, virtuosity, freedom. With joyful authenticity and no frills, the revolutionary skating-artists combine excerpts of their most-acclaimed pieces and short pieces to create a festive, accessible and impressive entry-door to their new choreographic art form.
