Hm, tightwire walking is starting to seem less and less feasible, due to the requirements of the anchors. In order to hold the wire taut without much of a drop in the middle, it takes a few thousand pounds of force (and mathematically, as the sag goes to zero, the tension goes to infinity). The easiest riggings for tightropes are small free-standing things, which wouldn't make for anything flashy. This'll require some more thought.
