Die wagemutigen Wiener Künstler haben sich am Dienstag der Schwerkraft widersetzt, als sie eine horizontale öffentliche Show auf einer 21 m hohen vertikalen Bühne aufführten, der höchsten temporären Struktur, die jemals im Trafalgar Squar gebaut wurde

Daring performers from Vienna on Tuesday “defied gravity” when they performed a horizontal public show on a 21m (69ft) vertical stage, the tallest temporary structure ever built in Trafalgar Square in London.

Icons of Vienna – and Londoners’ perceptions of the Austrian city – will be literally turned on their side as part of a two-day event held by the Vienna Tourist Board to encourage Londoners to see “Vienna from a different angle.”

The spectacular aerobatics show is being played till today on the wall in front of Nelson’s Column four times daily, at 1pm, 3:30pm, 5:30pm and 7pm, a daring celebration of traditional and modern Viennese culture while suspended in the air. In between shows, there is also a chance for the public to take a spine-tingling horizontal stroll down the wall – face first! – defying gravity through specially developed climbing harnesses.

Mixing art, sound, lights and adventurous aerial displays, the show takes inspiration from Vienna’s modern music scene, Imperial heritage, iconic artist Gustav Kilmt, indulgent food and wine scene, and the Viennese waltz.

All the action occurs under the careful guidance of a team of highly-trained safety professionals led by Jochen Schweizer – a record-breaking daredevil who still holds the record for the world’s highest bungee jump.

The Vienna Tourist Board is also offering a VIP trip to Vienna for those who take the most memorable photograph or video of the ‘Vienna from a Different Angle’ event.

Images and videos have been uploaded on http://www.vienna.info/vertical or http://www.facebook.com/ViennaTouristBoard.

The lucky competition prize winner and a partner will be treated to a 4* hotel for two nights with dinner and for those who dare, a free bungee jump from the Donauturn – Austria’s tallest building.
