The Science & Circus Arts Show!

"LocoMotion is smart, creative, and perfectly entertaining."
—Mikala Thompson, Brand Development Manager, The Lincoln Center, Fort Collins

National Juggling Champion and movement artist Peter Davison presents juggling, unicycling, balancing, acrobatics, and more, while teaching the science behind the artistry.

Much more than a "science demonstration," Peter mixes awesome circus skills with dance and physical theater in a unique presentation that captivates all ages.

Human and machine locomotion, Newton's Laws of Motion, center of gravity, gyroscopic action, centrifugal and centripetal forces, friction, and other physical phenomena are revealed.

Workshops and a study guide are available to keep the fun and learning going well after the show is over.

This show is packed with audience participation, education, and entertainment!

REVIEWS for LocoMotion

"'This was the best program [Palmer Lake Library] has ever had!' ...comment received from a patron of many years. Every element of Peter's program was coordinated with wonderful musical accompaniment. He moved seamlessly from one segment to the next keeping the entire audience (and library staff) enthralled. He had several opportunities for children to participate in meaningful ways. When you host Peter Davison you will appreciate his preparedness, calm manor, ability to engage a wide-range of ages simultaneously, his skill with his technical equipment, and of course his physical accomplishments."
—Linda Fuqua-Jones, Branch Supervisor, Palmer Lake Branch Library, Pikes Peak Library District

"Peter Davison's expert artistry and experienced showmanship combine to create a captivating display from which he cleverly reveals the science behind the circus arts. Peter was well-prepared for the size and scope of the crowd, and demonstrated a refreshingly exceptional level of professionalism throughout the entire booking process. He's a rare talent who has mastered the art of juggling teaching and entertaining...and juggling."
—Mikala Thompson, Brand Development Manager, The Lincoln Center, Fort Collins

"Peter's understanding and ability to connect physics concepts to the world of circus arts is mesmerizing. Just when one thinks he can't possibly add another dimension he expands to yet another concept and keeps the audience spinning right along with him!"
—Paula Ciberay, Youth Services Program & Outreach Manager, Wilkinson Public Library, Telluride

"The performance was fantastic with movement and acrobatics. Somehow he managed to relate each act to specific laws of physical science. The library would gladly have him perform again and again."
—James Ramsey, Ford-Warren Branch, Denver Public Library

"It is my pleasure to recommend Peter Davison and his program, The Science & Circus Arts Show. Based on his work, I would rank him as one of the best performers we have ever had. Mr. Davison distinguished himself by coming fully prepared with interesting information that was both informative and highly creative. He held a captive audience which included a range of ages from very young children all the way through adults. His high energy, patience and professionalism made the program a success. The following are just a few of the compliments our library received regarding Mr. Davison and his performance: "When will he be back? My kids and I loved him!" "Thank you for having this program. It was so great." "Where else will he be performing? My other daughter couldn't come today but she would have loved this!" A child around the age of 7 years old came up to me after the show and thanked me for having him come to the library saying, "That was so neat. I want to learn how to do that stuff."
