Philippe Petit, "Man On Wire" Star, To Teach Tightrope Walking In Williamsburg

The guerilla tightrope walker, who danced on a wire between the Twin Towers in 1974, will soon share his gift with a small group of New York City students.

Philippe Petit, the eccentric Frenchmen whose feats of daring were immortalized in the 2008 Oscar-winning documentary "Man on Wire," will host three sets of 2-day workshops at STREB's Lab for Action Mechanics (S.L.A.M.) in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, according to the art space.
