Unity College Centre for the Performing Arts, 42 Depot St., will present local juggler Morten Hansen in “Falling Up Words” Saturday, June 26 at 7 p.m.

Award-winning juggler Hansen’s show is a visual treat appropriate for a wide range of ages. “Falling Up Words” is uniquely suited to a family audience; the excitement of Hansen’s juggling will appeal to young children, but there is an underlying complexity that will satisfy the most sophisticated theatergoers.

Hansen has received accolades from around New England and the world in his decades-long juggling career. Circus Space Cabaret in London, England called him one of America’s finest jugglers. He has received four gold medals from the International Jugglers Association and, in 2003, he set a world record by juggling 15 balls with juggling partner Ben Jennings. He has performed in Chicago, Los Angeles, Tucson, Orlando, Minneapolis and New York City as well as London, England and Edinburgh, Scotland.

“Juggling has held my interest for the last 20 years because of its beauty and complexity; I love to share that beauty with others,” said Hansen, who lives in Troy. “Performing is an opportunity to share what I find fascinating about juggling.”

Hansen’s original choreography and humor is set to a unique soundtrack featuring the work of Peter Mayer, Gideon Freudmann, Paul Newton and Ray Lamontagne.

“I’m very excited to be performing in Unity. It’s only once or twice a year that I get to perform locally for my own community,” he said.

Tickets are $10, $5 for children. For more information, call 948-7469 or visit unityme.org. Next up at Unity College Centre will be the Paul McKenna Band Thursday, July 1 at 7:30 p.m. ($10).
