Philippe Petit lecture

Philippe Petit-Man on Wire-will discuss his life dedicated to creating "theater in the sky." Petit has presented more than 80 high-wire walks around the world, the most famous his 1974 illegal walk for nearly an hour on a steel cable stretched between the twin towers in New York City. A lecture by Philippe is a bit like landing on the moon: everything is different, surprising, and exciting!
Presented by The Creative Arts Across Disciplines initiative of Vassar College, funded by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation
