Reminiscent of a young girl thoughtfully playing out her game of hopscotch,
the artist is a study in nimble, dexterity and relaxed grace. Balanced on a wire
measuring less than two centimeters in diameter, no one breaks her concentration
or disturbs the lively pace of her intricate footwork for she is in a world which
only she commands.
The "Tight Wire" performance made its first appearance during the Japanese
Tour in 1996 and continued through Hong Kong that same year. The act was performed
by Molly Saudek, a young artist from the United States, and was not continued
when Alegrìa went to Europe (1997-1998).
When Alegrìa returned to Japan/Hong Kong in 2004-2005 (as Alegrìa 2),
extra elements were once again added into the show. One of those was a "Slack Wire"
act performed by Yang Huang, a young artist from China. When Alegrìa moved
on to Europe for the second time (2006-2007), Slack Wire did not continue.
