Experience a breathtaking, family-friendly event that sees figure skaters and dancers perform exquisite choreography on ice set to electroacoustic music.
Murmuration. This is how ornithologists call the mesmerizing aerial ballets of swarms of birds. The grounded flight of glide, the fluid speed of our iceskates, and the sheer immensity of a frozen stage allows us to bring this phenomenon to the performing arts for the very first time.
This unique event features ice-mavericks combining the athletic virtuosity of competitive figure skaters, the choreographic intelligence of contemporary dancers, and the physical instinct for flocking. They’ll join three of Le Patin Libre’s founding artists and choreographers who will use the flocking metaphor to ask big questions: why do we gather? Why do we split? Why do we polarize? Why is our collective behaviour sometimes so baffling?
This show explores how humans get together: as instinctive creatures, as variables of algorithms (that’s what flocks are…), as cogs in machines, and, sometimes, as achieved individuals.
