20 years on: Highly Sprung’s return to Smithswood Academy

Just over twenty years ago, when Highly Sprung was still in its infancy, we had one of the most important phone calls of our careers: a researcher from Warwick University was in desperate need of a company or artist to join them in delivering 2 weeks of workshops in a Birmingham school.
