Description: Traditional Korean Jultagi is a distinctive form of tightrope walking that is accompanied by music and witty dialogue between the tightrope walker and an earthbound clown. The tightrope walker executes a variety of acrobatic feats along with jokes, mimicry, songs and dance, while a clown engages the tightrope walker in humorous banter and musicians play to accompany the entertainment. The Jultagi Safeguarding Association in Gyeonggi Province oversees the transmission of skills through apprenticeships with masters, public classes and summer camps.
