Davison up in the air this week

Juggler, dancer, actor and poet Peter Davison will keep all his hats and more in the air when he performs at area libraries next week.

A one-of-a-kind artist, Davison transforms the stage into a magical world of motion. In his captivating one-man show, “Up in the Air,” he unleashes an amazing variety of theatrical skills.

From a rhythmic blend of juggling, drumming, and poetry choreographed to music to astonishing interactions with household objects, he presents a synthesis of movement art that is truly unique.

Since winning first place at the 1982 National Juggling Championships, Davison has toured from Maine to California, from Hong Kong to Spain, performing in venues from street festivals to major theaters. He was featured on the CBS TV special, “Harry Anderson – The Tricks of His Trade,” and was a member of the acclaimed trio Airjazz, which appeared on the “Tonight Show” with Johnny Carson.

He has been a guest teacher at the National Circus School of France, at the invitation of Cirque du Soleil founder Guy Caron, and he received a performance fellowship from the Colorado Council on the Arts for his unique multi-disciplinary work.

“Up in the Air” is a show for the whole family, with a level of sophistication that appeals to adults, and a humorous visual impact that keeps children spellbound.

Here’s the performance schedule:

Tuesday, July 22: 10:30 a.m. at Carbondale Town Hall and 1 and 3 p.m. at the Glenwood Springs Library;

Wednesday, July 23: 10:30 a.m. at the New Castle Community Center and 2 p.m. at Bea Underwood Elementary School in Battlement Mesa.
