Rollercoaster

Ultra-modern, pop-punk juggling by Wes Peden
Premiere 2022
Juggling’s own superhero returns with one hour of unadulterated ultra-modern, pop-punk joy. Using the thrill and design of Rollercoasters as a starting point for an hour of the most exhilarating juggling ever made.

Surrounded by a huge inflatable pink structure and accompanied by electro beats composed of distorted rollercoaster sounds, Peden performs original tricks inspired by rollercoasters and their high-tech seatbelts. A spinning plate ceremony becomes a celebration of the great rides of the past; an epic 3 ball disco juggling evokes the evolution of rollercoasters; a 4-meter transparent tube turns into a path around Wes’ body to make balls flow through loops, helixes, and corkscrews. Rollercoaster twists theatrical rules to create a safe space to perform some of the most difficult and unique juggling ever done on stage!
