Bleach Festival - Highly Sprung - IMAGE: Daniel Boud

BLEACH* FESTIVAL, BROADBEACH ALLIANCE AND CITY OF GOLD COAST – DIVISION 10 PRESENT HIGHLY SPRUNG

Created by acclaimed Australian arts company Legs On The Wall, Highly Sprung is a new outdoor trampoline spectacle that will bounce its way into Broadbeach as part of Bleach* Festival 2017.

This dynamic new work takes place on a series of Olympic-sized trampolines, binding acrobatics, dance, physical theatre and music into an irresistible collision of performance and playground.

Choreographic, acrobatic and storytelling skills will wow in this physical theatre piece that explores the everyday challenges of four people finding it difficult to start the day.

Following each performance, the stage becomes a public playground, as the audience – young and old – are invited in to kick off their shoes and become part of the Bleach* Festival cast.

Legs On The Wall have performed all over the world to audiences tallying over half-a-million people, including at the opening night of the London Cultural Olympiad in 2012 (The Voyage), Homelands in the Sydney CBD, and most recently at the Commonwealth Games in Glasgow (Perch).

 “This show takes audiences out of their everyday environment into a fast-paced new work of buoyancy and incredible athleticism. With the ocean as the backdrop, the urban edge of this show will transport audiences to new heights. The perfect event for the Easter holiday weekend, this Queensland premiere invites you to play on the set and be completely captivated by the skill and talents of trampolinists, parkourists and physical theatre performers. Legs on the Wall creatively bring together performers from unconventional sports and athletics backgrounds and thrusts them into an artistic space.” – Bleach* Festival Artistic Director Louise Bezzina
