OLYMPIC champion and head judge on ITV’s Dancing on Ice, Robin Cousins has hand-picked the greatest ice skaters from around the globe to bring his incredible new production, 'Ice', to life, when it comes to The Bristol Hippodrome at the end of the month.
Dynamic and atmospheric “Robin Cousins' Ice” will draw you into its unique world, where world class skaters glide, soar, flip and fly in a truly theatrical setting.
'Ice' features a powerful soundtrack of original music and reworked modern classics designed to delight and enthrall and redefines ice skating for a new generation with a spectacular show the like of which UK theatres have not seen in 30 years.
Robin Cousins said “It’s been 30 years since I created ‘Electric Ice’ which took to the theatrical stage and changed the look of ice shows. I am very excited to bring the daring and dazzling world of figure skating back into an intimate theatrical setting.
“The show is not an adaptation of a ballet, or borrowed from the world of musical theatre. There are no judges, just the audience. It is a show where the choreography is driven by the music, where the movement has room to breathe, and the skaters can let their blades do the talking. To be able to move like a skater is every dancer’s dream. To be motionless, yet travelling at great speed. Skaters are able to soar across the frozen stage in ways a dancer can only dream of doing.
“I have been working ‘on ice’ for over 40 years, from my start in regional club competitions to World and Olympic Championships, choreography and performance for film, television, theatre and award winning arena Ice productions. Every new project brings its own challenges and I relish the chance to try something new with tried and tested ideas. I’m always pushing myself in new directions.”
Robin Cousins' 'Ice' comes to the Bristol Hippodrome April 30- May 3. Visit www.robincousinsice.com for more details
