Vertical: Le Patin Libre

Skate at Somerset House wraps up with a sensational display of dancing on ice thanks to Canadian quintet Le Patin Libre and their award-winning double bill 'Vertical'. The show which challenges the conventions of traditional figure skating and teams movement, wit and super high speeds was a smash hit during the 2014 edition of Dance Umbrella, and its return brings a specially created soundtrack created by cello virtuoso and electronic composer Jasmin Boivin and lighting design by Lucy Cater to the rink. Book tickets in advance via the Somerset House website.

This was quite mesmerising and you could hear a pin drop as it was so eerily quiet during this amazing performance as the whole audience were captivated! The sound of the skates on the ice, provided the backdrop music - was very clever! The combination of the talent of the skaters and the beautiful backdrop of Somerset house, made it truly magical!
