French artist Tatiana Bongonga will be walking a tightrope 35 metres above the Vltava river. The rope will be 350 meters long.
The dizzying spectacle will take place on Wednesday, August 14 from 6 pm and is accompanied by a chamber orchestra, without any safety equipment.
The rope will go from the Faculty of Law, across the Vltava River to Letná Park.
Acrobats practicing tightrope walking, also called funambulism, maintain their balance by positioning their center of mass directly over their base of support, a rope or a wire.
Tatiana has been a performer since the age of 7 when she took her first tentative steps on a 10-meter high wire.
