Bridging art and athletics

Lauren Farr and Neill Shelton perform “Eclipse.”

Despite the rising temperatures throughout the region, a cold front is gliding into town this month.

This cold spell is slated to take form as an isolated force sweeping in by way of Kittery, Maine to Jacob’s Pillow in Becket on Wednesday, July 17.

For the first time in the history of the Berkshires-based venue, an ice dancing group will perform — outdoors. Through the use of a synthetic ice surface of interlocking polymer panels that mimics the properties of ice, members from performing arts company Ice Dance International will perform with skates that have professional metal blades, “In Flight,” at Jacob’s Pillow Inside/Out stage.

Inspired by the flight of birds and space, the performance shares the joy, flight and flow of skating, said Douglas Webster, founding artistic director. Six members of the troupe will perform three routines set to music by Ralph Vaugh Williams, Chet Baker and Max Richter.

“(The show) mimics those beautiful qualities of birds flocking and birds flying together in formations,” said Webster. “The joy of flight and flow. We’re trying to promote this idea as a beautiful art form.”
