Meet Hovsep Beglaryan, one of the last living Armenian tightrope dancers. An orphan, Hovesp was trained by Zhora and Knyaz, once fierce competitors who united over their dedication to keep this art alive. Tightrope dancing, once an extremely respected art, has been fading from existence in recent years. A few decades ago there were more than 20 families practicing this art throughout Armenia but today there are only a few who continue the tradition.
