Rollercoaster

Ultra-modern, pop-punk juggling by Wes Peden
Indoor
Surrounded by huge inflatable blue structures and accompanied by electro beats composed of distorted rollercoaster sounds, Wes 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 place to perform some of the most difficult and unique juggling ever done on stage!
