Rollercoaster - Ultra-modern pop-punk juggling at Salisbury International Arts Festival
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!
Wes has performed around the world from Olympic stadiums in Tokyo to Broadway theatres in NYC and Glacier Museums in Iceland. His energetic, playful and complex style has won awards from the International Juggling Association and Cirque de Demain.
Wes uses the skills he has honed from the age of 5 to twist gravity into the most beautiful knots physics will allow.
