French tightrope walker Tatiana Bongonga will be attempting to cross a valley in the Algarve on a 150-metre long rope, unaided, and at a height of 30-metres.

The unprecedented event is part of her ‘Traversée’ show, which takes place in Aljezur on 21 April. The circus art consists of maintaining balance when walking, jumping or doing acrobatics on a tightrope or a metallic cable.
