“Highly Sprung has a history of creating audacious and breath-taking performances.” 


Today we are looking back at some of our favourite memories from the last year. In October, Coventry City of Culture announced the first features of their programme and, at Highly Sprung Performance, we were thrilled to share our new piece Castaway. Castaway challenges our ‘Throwaway Society’ and aims to inspire audiences to consider their role within the climate crisis.’  It will be coming to Coventry in August 2021 and Spring 2022, in partnership with the Canal and River Trust.


Listen below to a conversation between Sarah Worth and Rachel New at the BBC, discussing Castaway, our brand new aerial rig, and how art can be used for activism and change.
