The wirewalk is for Andrea a movement on a steel line, done in a certain space and in a precise moment.
Each walk is the result of a precise choice, the choice to bring his energy to vibrate together with the energy of a place, a natural or a urban context.
It’s a moment of extreme suspension and at the same time of maximum rooting in the “here and now”.
At the same time, the walk of the funambolist is an archetypal act that communicates directly to the unconscious, showing a way where no one sees any.
Suspend the ordinary, raise your eyes to the sky and discover up there, in our familiar urban context, an extraordinary hazard: the subtle balance of the tightrope walker. A profoundly symbolic, dense and essential show, synthesis of human feeling.
“I imagine that there is a sort of context that has slowly widened around the wire because there are not only me and the wire, but it’s me and the wire both connected to two hills, which are themselves connected to the ground, which is connected to a world inside a whole universe.”
