The Physical Fellowship
The UK’s only physical performance festival exclusively for young people.
Highly Sprung’s Physical Fellowship was established over ten years ago to give young people the opportunity to explore their understanding and experience of physical theatre.
To this day, it remains a unique and exciting opportunity for 11 to 19-year-olds to immerse themselves completely in physical theatre practice, working with renowned professional artists to make and present original work.
Highly Sprung artists hold two whole-day workshops with participating schools and youth groups to teach physical theatre skills. Students are inspired to use physical techniques to then create their own piece of original physical theatre.
School bookings open for July 2024
