Video Interview with Le Patin Libre troop performing at the Brixton Ice Rink : What is Contemporary Skating?

Amidst the spins and sequins of traditional figure skating, a few irreverent yet world class athletes turned away from the ageing traditions of their discipline in order to develop a new form of contemporary dance using the magic of gliding.

Le Patin Libre is a Franco-Canadian company. Its skating artists are recognized as pioneers of this new performance art. In November 2012, they will be proposing their work in London for the first time through modest demonstrations at Brixton Ice Rink:“What is contemporary ice skating?” – November 10th and 17th 2012, 8:30pm

The skating artists believe these accessible events will convince the artistic community that their years of hard work against the well-deserved stigmas of “On Ice” entertainment paid off and truly gave birth to something worthy of the most demanding audiences.

These will hopefully give ice-skating the cultural forgiveness Le Patin Libre is begging for by also attending to the first complete contemporary skating piece to be presented in London: “The Rule of 3” – January 9 th 2013, 8:00pm – January 20th, 5:00pm

Alexandra Palace’s ice rink (more dates and locations to be announced soon) “The Rule of 3” is aesthetically centered on a liberating re-exploration of the medium of skating, with which immobile bodies can be set into motion… However xperimental, the piece is still wittingly narrative, telling the story of a group of addicts going through a strange therapy. Beyond its weird word-less humour, the piece will be appreciated as a heartfelt ode to the beauty of the strange, to the grace of the wounded and to the victory of the extraordinary over the banal.“A little revolution” – La Presse, Canada, 2008 “Crowds did well to rush there. It’s great art.” – L’Yonne Républicaine, France, 2007“A real performance art” – Le Figaro, France, 2012

Floe Piece
Liberate Tate. Arctic Ice, canvas, light, water.

“The fact that BP had one major incident in 2010 does not mean we should not be taking support from them.” – Nicholas Serota, Director, Tate.

[Floe Piece - an expression applied to sheets of ice not more than a furlong in length]

The Deepwater Horizon disaster did not end in 2010 for the communities affected; BP’s harmful impacts are numerous and occur across the globe year on year. In 2010-11 BP pushed forward expansion plans into the Arctic in Alaska, Canada and Russia.

Oil extraction in this region is only possible because of melting ice caused by climate change arctic melting effects. Spills in Arctic waters are immensely more complicated than elsewhere, and indeed BP is itself responsible for the largest oil spill on Alaska’s north slope, at Prudhoe Bay in 2006, where the company continues to drill for oil.

This Arctic ice has been transported from the Arctic region to London, the home of BP; today (14 January 2012) it has been carried by Liberate Tate from Occupy London at LSX to Tate Modern’s Turbine Hall.

The journey of this block of ice retraces the line of connection from BP’s devastating impacts on ecosystems, communities and the global climate to Tate, an art museum complicit in this destruction though its support of the company’s efforts to create a positive public image, a social licence to operate.

Earthalujah UK Tour: Liberate Tate
Reverend Billy and & The Church of Earthalujah invite you to a service at the Tate Modern Turbine Hall on Monday 18 July, 5.30.

An exorcism of the evil spirit of BP, brought to you by Liberate Tate, UK Tar Sands Network, London Rising Tide, Art Not Oil and Climate Rush.

Brothers and sisters, a dark beast lurks within the bosom of one of our most cherished arts institutions. While good-hearted, god-fearing, gallery goers glory in the miracle of art, the beast below is encircling the planet with its oily tentacles, destroying righteous communities, poisoning God’s beauteous creations, and bringing us all ever closer to the climate apocalypse.

And the name of that beast is BP. For 20 long years, BP has embedded its foulness deep within the Tate, using the fair face of the arts to mask the stench of its true nature.

On Monday 18 July, join Reverend Billy and & The Church of Earthalujah, as we lay hands on the Tate Modern, and cast out the evil demon of BP’s oil sponsorship.

THE CHURCH OF EARTHALUJAH featuring Reverend Billy and the 35-voice Stop Shopping Gospel Choir is part theater piece, part church service, part performance art and wholly inspirational. Family friendly but big bank deadly, The Church of Earthalujah condemns the corporate exploiters and polluters of the world to the Lake of Hellfire – especially the ones that spew CO-2 through mountaintop removal, hydro-fracking, super malls and shipping sweatshop products long distances with with fossil fuel-burning engines. We believe that the fires and droughts and quakes and typhoons are not natural disasters, but shout-outs from this big living thing we’re a part of. The message is loud and clear when we learn to put our ears to the dirt:
