About Urban Astronaut

Presented by Highly Sprung Performance, Urban Astronaut provides a glimpse of a future that might be, where problems surrounding air pollution have grown to a crisis point. Is there any way back?

Combining stunning design and a unique travelling flying machine with simple storytelling and a moving dance performance, Urban Astronaut searches 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.

Commissioned by Without Walls and Ageas Salisbury International Arts Festival, Norfolk & Norwich Festival and Out There International Festival of Circus & Street Arts. Supported by Gi20.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Urban Astronaut are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
