The Ice Theatre of New York’s free City Skate Concert Series continues February 29 at 1:00 with “Masculine/Feminine,” a program of works that examine gender roles in figure skating. One of the highlights is “Masculine/Feminine,” a restaging of David Parsons’s 2003 duet “Twist,” choreographed by Parsons specifically for ITNY, which has been integrating contemporary dance, music, and art into its repertoire since 1984; it will be performed by Eve Chalom and Jonathon Hunt. Also on the bill will be “Inner Eye” by Jim May of the Sokolow Theatre Dance Ensemble in addition to pieces by Douglas Webster of ITNY and Young Artist Showcase winner Tommy Steenberg. And as a bonus, free hot chocolate will be served. ITNY will be back at the rink on March 14 with “Energy Flow” and April 4 with “Angel Part I.” They will also present the seventeenth New Works & Young Artists series at Riverbank State Park on Thursday mornings at 10:30 in March and at the World Ice Arena in Flushing on Tuesday, March 27.
