There is nothing more beautiful or essential in the world of wire walking than simply walking on the wire, but in circus school no high-wire walker is learning that. They don’t walk beautifully, or elegantly, because they don’t love it enough. They are not inhabited by the wire.
Philippe Petit, whose World Trade Center wire-walk was 40 years ago today, talks to Calvin Tomkins: http://nyr.kr/1nahZ2T
“Our love has been the thread through the labyrinth, the net under the high-wire walker, the only real thing in this strange life of mine that I could ever trust. Tonight I feel that my love for you has more density in this world than I do, myself: as though it could linger on after me and surround you, keep you, hold you.”
