Cousins' new ice dance show

THE world premiere of Robin Cousins’ ICE – The Skating Stage Experience opened at Southampton’s Mayflower theatre this week.

Robin Cousins, Olympic champion and head judge on ITV’s Dancing on Ice, has hand-picked the greatest ice skaters from around the world to bring his new production to life. World class skaters will glide, soar, flip and fly in a truly theatrical setting, with a soundtrack of original music and reworked modern classics to “delight and enthral”.

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.

Both of my previous shows Electric Ice and Ice Majesty, were created in the UK and I’m very proud that the world premiere of Robin Cousins’ ICE will happen here too.”

“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.”

For tickets for the show, which runs until Sunday, call 02380 711811 or visit mayflower.org.uk.
