Molly Plunk – Tightwire

Molly Plunk has always dreamed of joining Zoppé Circus. She hails from a farming community in central Illinois and has a strong passion for tradition and folk art. Dating back to Ancient Greece, tightrope walking has been a staple of entertainers since the 14th century. Her own wire dancing act is an expression of this passion and history.

Molly wraps the strength and balance necessary to preform what is known by some as the first aerial art in a blanket of beauty and joy. Juggling complex challenges of perception and motor control Molly dances an Irish jig as she bounds gracefully across the wire, invoking the spirit of her ancestors.
