Duel of the Day #2065

It’s not quite right to call this a duel, because what Brittany and Pearce here are doing is a sort of acrobatic collaboration. Their goal is simple to meet in the middle, walking from opposite ends of the slackline, but every step either one takes causes the line to quiver, sending ripples across to the other’s ankles. I’m sure many people do this sort of thing as a competition, attempting to throw the other off the line, but I like this sort of game – it asks you to step gently, and to be perceptive to your partner’s motions, a bit like dancing at a distance.

Today was everything it needed to be, and this little slackline break was the bow on the wrapping.
