Using movement to tell stories when words won’t do


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.


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


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 Youth

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 taster session.


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

Education: a creative approch to the curriculum with Ready Box-Set Go  for Key Stages 1-5 


Ready Box-Set Go is a new teaching resource for Primary and Secondary Schools. Using our signature approach and expertise, we have packaged up the ‘Highly Sprung experience’ in a way which is accessible and deliverable for teachers.

We are offering a range of varied, engaging ‘box-sets’ to deliver in the classroom, packed full of physical and digital resources. Each inspired by a Highly Sprung story or performance, box sets address a range of themes and will make a real difference to children and young people.



What People Say

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.

Urban Astronaut

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.

Artist Training

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.
