Experience
Slackwire
(Apr.23.2009 - Mar.12.2020)


In a tour-de-force performance a spider defies gravity and physics in a succession of seemingly impossible feats of strength and balance as he traverses a wire that appears to give him no support. At one point he hangs at a 45-degree angle over the ground, some 15 feet below, and he tops that with an upside-down unicycle act. And the wire is in almost-constant motion up and down, adding to the degree of difficulty.

A black spider takes firm control of our world with this phenomenal number - slackwire. First strung loosely close to the stage's floor, then raised 20 feet or more above the stage, Li Wei performs an amazing number of hand-balancing and coordinated techniques on this tension-less wire. One hand, two hand and no-hand (cane) balancing techniques are made without a fuss. He even makes riding a uni-cycle upside down powered only by his hands look easy. It was definitely the most exciting performance of OVO at this showing; quite a crowd pleaser!
