“A liberating, exhilarating, breathtaking experience” -The Stage (UK)

Le Patin Libre (French for “Free Skate”) are pioneers of contemporary skating who defy stereotypes, transforming athleticism into a means of free expression. Founded in Montréal by former high-level figure skaters, the company wields ice, skates and glide as pure mediums of artistic storytelling.

In “Carte Blanche,” Le Patin Libre’s founders draw on influences from theatre, street dance, and tap, applying all to the ice rink that is their stage. With joyful authenticity, the artists combine the best excerpts of their showstopping repertory to create a festive introduction to their new choreographic art form.

FirstWorks kicks off Three Nights of Lights with three free shows of international artistry. Get inspired for an Ice-Skating Dance Party to follow the final show, open to all!

*ALL ATTENDEES MUST CHECK IN AT THE RINK TICKET WINDOW FOR ADMISSION STICKERS. Rental Skates are $7 per person. Attendees are welcome to bring their own ice-skates for the free dance party. Performances end at 8:30PM and Public Ice Skating Dance Party in 8:30-9:30PM. The rink will close for public skating at 9:30PM
