On the Juhkentali 28 street in the centre of Tallinn, a brand new hotel with 190 rooms by a world famous hotel chain IBIS is currently under construction. The cornerstone was set on 20.04.2018. I did my most extreme slackline show for this event.
The performance took place between the construction cranes on a 40 m long and 15 m high slackline, while wearing a spiderman costume. It was a once in a lifetime opportunity for me, since I had been dreaming about this type of slackline setup for a long time.
„This is the first IBIS hotel in Estonia, which will be opened in spring 2019 and what’s really special about this hotel is that the rooms will have built-in saunas“ said Madis Mägi, the board chairman of the construction company Hausers Grupp.
The concept of the performance was to bring down a forgotten cornerstone from a telescopic handler, which could only be reached via slackline. A volunteer was asked to bring down the cornerstone. The board chairman volunteered and started to climb up the crane. He was given a spiderman mask as a good luck charm for preventing him falling down. We made a switch behind the advertising posters and it was actually me who continued the „mission“.
