The Canadian iconoclastic ice skaters return to Edinburgh's vintage indoor ice rink, sharing their signature mix of movement, wit, speed and grace. In Influences, the performers play with how our body language can influence others. In the second piece of the double-bill, Vertical, audiences are invited to view the artists up close, with seating on the ice. The virtuosity of figure skating joyfully meets the attitude of street dance and the sophistication of contemporary performance. As seen on BBC.
