Worldwide Escape Artist Relay 2009


On Saturday, October 24, 2009, escape artists around the world participated in the third Worldwide Escape Artist Relay, the largest coordinated performance by escape artists in history. The Worldwide Escape Artist Relay circled the globe as escape artists around the world performed a variety of thrilling escapes. Each performer documented his or her performance as it took place. The participants in the Worldwide Escape Artist Relay, men and women, young and old, novices and seasoned pros emerging from retirement, united to restore the Art of Escape to its rightful place in the public imagination!

The first Worldwide Escape Artist Relay was held on October 29, 2005. Over fifty escape artists around the world participated in the historic event, escaping from handcuffs, straitjackets, chains, steel drums filled with water, steel boxes, packing crates, and the notorious Water Torture Cell before a collective audience of thousands. The second Worldwide Escape Artist Relay was held on October 27, 2007. Over one hundred escape artists participated, and new records were set. WEAR 2009 will easily eclipse the previous two events.
