Whether it’s putting on our own skates or cheering on the Canadiens at the Bell Centre, Montreal has always had a love affair with the ice. And it will be on full display during a free ice show called Cadence, presented by 7 Doigts production. It will take place on the city’s new outdoor skating rink, Quiet Esplanadeat the Quartier des Spectacles until March 5 as part of the Montreal in light Festival.

The 30-minute show will feature 16 performers – world-class figure skaters and circus performers – doing impressive and technically challenging stunts like a triple axel. The show will also incorporate different forms of skating such as pair skating, ice dancing and extreme ice skating. High-flying acrobatics and barrel jumps will be combined with large screen projections and an original soundtrack.

Director Sebastien Soldevila describes it as a mix of ice skating and skateboarding. The high-energy show will take audiences on a journey, exploring the history of human interaction with ice. As the Cirque du Soleil show director Crystal, Soldevila says he wanted to tell a story that shows the dynamic aspect of skating and ice as a way to push the limits.

Soldevilla says the show is very family oriented and he hopes it inspires people to want to skate.

Cadence will take place every evening at 6:30 p.m. and 8:30 p.m. from February 24 to March 5.
