Peter Davison: Up in the Air

Peter Davison

Saturday, July 2 at the Wright Opera House, 2 p.m. & 7 p.m.

Be inspired to find wonder and delight in everything as champion juggler and movement artist Peter Davison brings ordinary objects to life in an amazing show of juggling, dance, and kinetic comedy. Imagine a cross between Charlie Chaplin and Fred Astaire, who has a knack for juggling. In fact, Davison dances with objects, partnering onstage with furniture, hats, bicycle tires, an umbrella, and jumbo garbage bags, all of which have games to play or stories to tell. With a great deal of creativity and skill, Davison reveals how ordinary things can become extraordinary. AN ALL-AGES SHOW!
