Introduction

It is thin, elegant and absolutely fascinating.

Doing tightwire means constantly trying to keep your balance not only on the wire, but between being light yet grounded, and between having control and yet letting go. It is the closest thing to imitating the grace of birds whislt keeping your feet on the ground. For me, who dreams to have wings, it is the perfect speciality!

During act creation, I am inspired by things that touch my heart, make me smile or dream. I like to play with music and rythm to share stories rich in love and emotion, which I tell through dancing on the wire .

Act in creation process

 

Sur le fil du souvenir
6/7min act, music by James Howard, arrangement by Bruno Cassal

It is one story for many stories. It is our struggle, and quite often our failure, to remember as time goes by.
It’s an act that blends together joy and sorrow, doubt and hope, moments of grace and of fear.
On the wire, discover a story told with as much gentleness as boldness.
 

Technical requirements

According to space requirement, the acts can be performed on a regular wire or on a free-standing wire (subject to availability).

A tightwire act requires:

  • A flat ground,
  • Appropriate lighting (in the evening for instance, for more details see with the artist),
  • A sound system able to play from CD, Ipod or file previously sent by e-mail.


For a regular tightwire:

  • The possibility to install two anchor points able to support 2200Kg each,
  • A minimal distance of 9m20 between these two ground points,
  • A minimal clearance of 2m in width,
  • A minimal clearance of 5m in height
  • If pegs are needed, someone who helps hammering them down.



For a free-standing wire:

  • A minimal lenght of 7m,
  • A minimal clearance of 2m in width,
  • A minimal clearance of 5m on height
  • Someone who helps to set up and to strike the wire.

 

Those specifications provide a general idea. It is possible to adapt the wire to different environment, either inside or outside. Please contact me if you need any additional information.
