Sensory Inclusive Passport to Culture: LocoMotion

About the event
National Juggling Champion and kinetic comedian 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 performance for 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. Be amazed and educated with LocoMotion!
What makes these performances sensory-inclusive?
These performances are modified to create a welcoming and supportive environment for children and adults on the autism spectrum as well as individuals with other sensitivity issues or developmental disabilities. Performers and LTAC staff work together to ensure there are no startling noises or visually over-stimulating components. Our team keeps sound levels lower than normal and keeps the lights in the audience higher than normal, ensuring audience members can see each other. Audience members are free to come and go if need be (there is always a “quiet room” available) and are asked to wave hands rather than clapping.
