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.

What’s On Now
