Highly Sprung: Fall Out
Highly Sprung present
You’re told to work hard, go to school, get your exams, blah, blah, blah. Why bother? You’d rather be in a club, having a laugh. Chilling with your mates. But then there’s your mate Jay, he’s really down. Lost all hope. What you don’t know is that Jay’s got a plan.
Highly Sprung’s high-energy physical theatre performance takes you inside a nightclub where three teenage friends embark on a journey of love, loss and self-discovery. You will be immersed in a frantic, energy fuelled production of dance, music, aerial movement and storytelling.
Fall Out was written in response to a growing concern that more young people are becoming disempowered, that they no longer have a voice or control over their own futures. Suicide rates amongst young people have risen in recent years and statistics suggest that 33% of young people (aged 16-24) consider taking their own lives.
Highly Sprung co-directors Mark and Sarah Worth say: “Fall Out is about young people searching for their voice through adolescence to adulthood. Focused at a young audience, it looks at issues that aren’t easily discussed at home or at school, and are therefore often swept under the carpet. Fall Out gives the audience a chance to face these issues head on, in a positive way.”
Get ready to go clubbing. You’re in for the night of your life.
