Using movement to tell stories when words won’t do

Hello, we’re Highly Sprung

The UK’s leading physical theatre company making work for and with children and young people.

We create outdoor and indoor performances that tell stories through movement, gesture and dance. Stories inspired by humanity, science, and the complex world around us.

We also train artists in physical theatre and run projects in primary and secondary schools here and across the world.

Productions

We create original physical theatre that empowers young people to explore and express their unique creativity and identity.

Training

We train and mentor both new and established arts practitioners in physical theatre and the kinaesthetic learning processes at the heart of our work.

Sprung

Our youth group with a difference develops physical performance skills and creativity in 4-19 year olds, in a fun and supportive setting. Get in touch for a free tasters session. 

Schools

We explore primary and secondary curriculum-based topics through physical performance to increase confidence, creativity and collaborative working.

For 2021 we have launched Ready, Box Set, Go, a new digital resource with series of engaging, dynamic packages. 

What’s On Now

New aerial performance CASTAWAY  premieres for Coventry 2021 

 

Sat 28th & Sun 29th August 2021, 12:30pm & 4pm 

All performances are FREE – just show up on the day. 

 

Drowning under a crushing mass of plastic, the Keeper of the Waterways awakens and rises up. It’s time for change.

Highly Sprung’s CastAway is a stunning outdoor performance that explores the impact of today’s throwaway society on our waterways. Featuring a unique gyroscopic flying machine, it presents a brand new approach to aerial theatre in a performance that promises to captivate audiences of all ages.

It draws interest and crowds long before the performance starts. This fantastic new aerial spectacle from Highly Sprung is a visual treat, but has some much deeper messages for its entranced audience.”

What People Say

No-one who watched the performance would have failed to be moved by the poignant storytelling achieved with excellent craft and skill by the performers. The wonderful smiling faces of the children and the tears of the adults clearly showed how much the narrative had touched us all.

Up, Up and Away

My nine-year-old daughter was completely taken in by your performance. I could tell her about what’s going on with the planet again and again and it would just go over her head. What you’ve just done there, will stay with her forever.

Training with Highly Sprung enhanced my teaching practice and equipped me with a new skill set. I learnt to approach workshops as a narrative, and this has provided me with a structure to my teaching that I can be creative and play with.
