Influences is a unique work of choreographed movement on ice that explores human interconnectivity and the relationship between a group and its individuals. The engagement marks Le Patin Libre’s BAM debut.

Observations on leadership, power, individualism, love, bullying, and rivalry are revealed throughout this thrilling rhythmic work, which heightens the relationship between performers and spectators by seating the audience directly on the ice. This arrangement offers an intense and intimate look at the piece’s intersection of virtuosity, velocity, and artistry

Le Patin Libre (French for “Free Skate”) is a contemporary ice skating company that uses ice, skates, and glide as mediums of storytelling.

Founded in 2005, Le Patin Libre is a premier international touring company under the artistic vision of Alexandre Hamel, activating skating rinks globally as a place where diverse audiences can gather and discover a new art form.
