Urban Astronaut

Urban Astronaut



The future. Earth is uninhabitable, destroyed by environmental pollution. But could this devastation be prevented?  

Suspended on a gravity defying flying machine, the Urban Astronaut travels through towns and cities to provide a glimpse of a not-so dystopian future. On his journey he meets a girl who provides the one thing the Astronaut has lost… hope.

Now in it’s 8th year touring, the renowned Highly Sprung’s Urban Astronaut exposes problems around air pollution, now at a crisis point.  Combining genre-defying aerial theatre with dynamic choreography and stunning design to tell a compelling story. Once again bringing audiences a global issue and inspiring them to make a change.
