Bridging the Gap

Jade Kindar Martin and partner Karine Mauffrey are set to perform their first Bristol based high wire stunt next week Led by Bristol-based Cirque Bijou, ‘Bridging the Gap’ will see world-famous tight wire artist Jade Kindar-Martin cycle across a 120 metre long high wire, set between two landmark buildings in the Hotwells area of the city.

To add to the spectacle, Hollywood stuntwoman Karine Mauffrey will perform a dramatic aerial trapeze routine suspended beneath the bicycle, as the artists undertake the daring duo stunt, 27 metres above the ground.

The event will open with a light projection show using the warehouse buildings as a canvas, accompanied by a musical score specially composed by Dom Coyote.

Set against the backdrop of the city, the piece, entitled ‘Bridging the Gap’, will symbolise the difference between our green intentions and our actions – and the bridge that we all need to cross to start living more sustainably.

The outdoor event is open to the public free of charge and will take place at 7pm on Saturday 24th January.

The artists’ journey will start at A Bond warehouse on Smeaton Road in Hotwells, finishing at the B Bond warehouse, also known as the CREATE centre.

Recommended vantage points include Greville Smyth Park, Ashton Road and the Cumberland Basin, Hotwells.
