And this show is real, they do it at home all the time and there is no security line or net or anything like that!
But this was just performed during the first days of the EXPO 2000. So you won't see them live unless you fly to Mexico.
|The tree trunk on the east ground.||First, they all walk around the trunk. The priest is playing music.||The four flying men climb up at first.|
|They reach the top and sit down.||They pull up the ropes and wind them around the top.||The rest of the rope is tied around the legs of the flying men.|
|Finally the priest climbs up the trunk...||...and mounts the top of the trunk.||Up there he plays his instrument and dances!! Even on one leg only!|
|After finishing the preparations the flying men let themselves fall back and now they hang only at the ropes.||Since the ropes were wound around the trunk the roll off slowly and...||...the men fly down slowly.|
|The priest stands, sits, lies down and...||...dances on the top...||...playing his music...|
|...while the men...||...go down...||...and down.|
|The arrival on the ground is very smooth...||...in a certain height they simply remove the rope from their leg and then they land!||Then the priest comes down...|
|...not without thanking the audience...||... that is giving them standing ovations!||They pose for the photographers...|
|And since that many people wanted to take pictures the pose in front of the Norwegian pavilion. That was really something!|
