Vertical Influences (Le Patin Lebre)

Vertical Influences

Become entranced by the kinetic response of body movement, as it flows from one human being to another. In ‘Vertical Influences’, the ice skaters form patterns in waves of progression and rebellion, until something entirely new is shaped. Powerful, fun, serious and exciting, these performers will captivate you with their skills, lure you with their ambiguous plot and surprise you with their street style. There aren’t many shows that could get their audience to endure sitting on ice for longer than ten minutes, but Le Patin Lebre have people willingly, and excitedly, sitting there, awaiting the second act. Nobody minds, however, as it just means observing these performers defy gravity, and twist at the speed of light, on an even closer level.

Assembly at Murrayfield Ice Rink, until 29 Aug.
