Robin Cousins’ Ice
Hall For Cornwall
Review by Caroline Chick
ROBIN COUSINS’ new show Ice has the edge – quite literally.
The Olympic champion and head judge on ITV’s Dancing On Ice has handpicked an elite cast of skaters from across the world for this skating spectacular, currently at Hall For Cornwall.
Cousins promised to redefine skating with this production and his cast of top class athletes did just that.
Skating to a dramatic soundtrack of original music and reworked classics, the professionals again and again took the audiences’ breath away with daring manoeuvres, never before seen lifts, spins, jumps and flips.
Masters of their blades, the edges and turns, were as exquisite as the dramatic tricks. Their skating was a somersault for the senses, made even more impressive by them performing on the limited space of the theatre’s stage. The control, the elegance and the power was in abundance and mesmerising.
Massive applause must go to professional skater Michael Solonoski (USA) for Tonight, which featured pitch perfect vocals while simultaneously executing intricate skating stunts.
Robin Cousins’ Ice is pure perfection.
It runs until Saturday at Hall For Cornwall, so you better get your skates on if you want to see this sensational show.
