Konrad Thurano: strange in paradise

Every respectable artist has to be billed with a unique peculiarity, to confirm his strangeness from the normal humanity. Konrad Thurano of Germany, was able to call himself the oldest living circus performer on earth.
And it was incredibly true.
He left this world few hours ago at age of 97. He walked on his wire from South Africa to Las Vegas, from Singapore to Madrid. He shared the stage with Grock and Rastelli, Sammy Davis and Bing Crosby.

Following is a little video excerpt in the act he performed at Dusseldorf with his son.
