Last Wednesday, The Québec Government Office in London had the pleasure of hosting a reception in honour of Québec contemporary ice skating group Le Patin Libre.
The reception followed a stunning performance by the company, entitled Vertical, at Somerset House’s iconic ice rink. The group, who are winners of the Total Theatre & The Place Award for Dance (Edinburgh Festival Fringe 2015) and nominees for Best Modern Choreography Critic’s Circle National Dance Award 2015, amazed the crowds with their technical skill and contemporary style.
At the reception, held in the presence of the artists, Agent-General Mr. Christos Sirros thanked Le Patin Libre for their dazzling performance and reaffirmed how the group represents the pride of Québec culture on the world stage. The Agent-General also thanked Somerset House for their collaboration and particularly Dance Umbrella, whose dedication has greatly helped Le Patin Libre in the building of a successful career.
Co-presented by Somerset House and Dance Umbrella, Vertical will be performed at Somerset House between 12-16 January. The Québec Government Office in London has been happy to support Le Patin Libre in their visit to the UK.
