Philippe Petit Onstage in East Hampton

At Guild Hall

Philippe Petit, the French high-wire artist, will forever be known for his 1974 walk between the twin towers of the World Trade Center, an exploit he repeated, at a much lower altitude, at LongHouse Reserve in East Hampton on the 40th anniversary of the feat.

Mr. Petit, also a gifted storyteller, will mine his experiences as a magician, street juggler, visual artist, carpenter, equestrian, and writer at 8 p.m. on Friday, June 22, at Guild Hall. He will recall how he learned to walk the wire the wrong way, he will mime how a juggler sold him misaligned clubs that were impossible to juggle, and he will reveal a bullfighting secret. He will also share the story of his first step on the legendary high-wire walk.

Tickets range from $40 to $85, $38 to $80 for members.
