Minnesota Fringe Festival 2020: "A Virtual Collaboration of Singing and Ice Skating (off-ice)"

Festival Location: Nightly Fringe (July 30)

Length: 33 minutes

Title: A Virtual Collaboration of Singing and Ice Skating (off-ice)

By: Heather Rae Music featuring Amy Berglund

Summary: Live music, roller blades, and hula hoops - oh my!

Highlights: Talented singer/songwriter Heather Rae performs a half dozen or so songs, both covers and originals, accompanying herself on piano or guitar. On the other side of the split screen, figure skater Amy Berglund (Heather and Amy met while performing and teaching figure skating) performs routines in roller blades on the pavement of a parking lot. I was a big fan of figure skating back in the day, but I've never seen someone perform such beautiful and graceful moves on pavement! It's a unique combination of art, exactly what Fringe is for. If you missed the live show, you can watch the video here. You can also find Heather Rae's music here, and watch for Heather and Amy to team up again live, in person, on ice again when things (someday) return to normal.
