GUANGZHOU, China (CNN/CCTV) - Tightrope walker Adili Wuxor finished a 380-foot-high wire performance in Guangzhou, capital of south China's Guangdong Province on Saturday night.
Adili Wuxor, one of China's most celebrated tightrope walkers, started his performance during the day and went onto a second round at night.
Compared to the daytime performance, low visibility and neon lights made the second performance more challenging.
Carrying a 68-foot-long balancing pole, the 32-year-old acrobat walked on a 1,660-foot-long, 1-inch-thick steel wire installed between the Canton Tower and Haixinsha Island.
The wire started from a 378-foot-tall platform on the 23rd floor of Guangzhou's landmark Canton Tower and ended on a 262-foot-tall sail sculpture in front of the city's Haixinsha Stadium.
In addition to walking, Wuxor also did other stunts -- such as sitting on the wire, standing on one foot, and even dancing on the wire.
Wuxor and his two disciples, who are from China's Uygur ethnic minority, gave a joint performance where the disciples lay down on the wire. Wuxor walked pass them by stepping on their shoulders.
"I thought of walking on a wire with a torch between Haixinsha Island and Canton Tower when the Guangzhou Asian Games opened," he said. "Today, the dream comes true, although I didn't hold a torch. But I held a torch to bridge the communication between Xinjiang and Guangdong people."
He said his performance has brought his dream into reality -- building a bridge of communication to connect Xinjiang and Guangzhou people.
