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.

Sprungsters

Our youth group with a difference develops physical performance skills and creativity in 4-21 year olds, in a fun and supportive setting.

Schools

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

What’s On Now

Following the outbreak of the Corona-virus, Highly Sprung was forced to cancel this year’s Physical Fellowship, but rather than cancel the event entirely we’ve decided to take it online. Unlocked is a week-long celebration of the creativity of young people during lock down, a challenge for you to unlock your imagination, free your mind and unleash your talent.

The event will be taking place across all social media platforms between Monday 29th June – Thursday 2nd July and any young person age 11-24 can get involved and create their own response to the theme ‘Unlocked’. 

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.
