Urban Astronaut provides a glimpse of a future that might be…
where problems surrounding air pollution have grown to crisis point,
is there any way back? What can the Urban Astronaut learn from
audiences now that might change his future?
Combining stunning design, unseen before aerial performance
(using a unique travelling flying machine that suspends the
performer 20ft in the air) with simple story telling and moving dance
performance, Urban Astronaut travels through towns and cities
searching for a solution to the environmental disaster that is present
in our near future. The answer is found in a simple encounter with a
young girl who provides the one thing the astronaut has lost… hope.
A bold new direction in physical theatre choreographed around a
bespoke structure, intriguing, enchanting and thought-provoking,
Highly Sprung once again take on a global issue with a narrative that
makes it at once personal and motivating.
Suitable for all ages - A performance in two parts- static and
promenade for towns, cities and parks and public spaces.
