Based in Coventry, the UK’s City of Culture 2021, Highly Sprung is one of the UK’s leading physical theatre companies making work for and with children and young people.
The company delivers in-school physical performance workshops, special projects and residencies to schools across the UK, covering a huge variety of curriculum-based topics from pre-school to 18. Highly Sprung’s hugely popular Physical Theatre Fellowship is the UK’s only physical performance festival exclusively for young people and the company also delivers CPD to educators, teachers and youth leaders. Working with children and young people is at the heart of everything it does.
During 2021, the company launched Ready, Box Set, Go! a new digital resource for primary and secondary schools with a series of engaging, dynamic packages.
Designed to influence and inspire how children and young people create and think, their tailored packages give creative ownership of the programme, develop critical thinking skills and cultivate an awareness of the wider world.
Every package comes with a pre-made box of physical and digital resources, using a Highly Sprung story or performance as an inspiration point.
