Philippe Petit: Just "a long walk on a high path"

Engaging choreographer Elizabeth Streb about whether movement "must be extreme" so "people will notice it as action," Philippe Petit took a different view of exercising suzerainty, of owning the moment. The Artsmeme blog:

In amazingly fluent English, Petit rejoined, 'I never take risks. I’m very tired of those words: risk-taker. dare-devil. I take a long walk on a high path in the sky. That poetry is not extreme — it’s exquisite, enigmatic....'

'I am not chancing my life by walking the wire. I am carrying my life across the wire.'
