We believe ice skating has the potential to become part of the contemporary performing arts.
The unique quality of gliding on ice opens new spaces, leads to new dynamics, and suggests new forms. It allows us to unfold creativity.
The festival UNFREEZE aims to connect people worldwide who are working in the field of contemporary ice skating. It fosters and supports the growing community.
The main focus of the festival UNFREEZE 2019 is about movement research. Concepts, methods, and practices of contemporary dance will be introduced within workshops, broadening the understanding and practice of movement as well as forms of artistic presentation on ice.
The goal of the UNFREEZE festival is to support international collaboration and encourage further development. We want to build structures of communication, of exchange and of cooperation between artists, different festivals, and all those interested in contemporary ice skating.
