Highly Sprung’s CastAway is a stunning outdoor performance that explores the impact of today’s throwaway society on our waterways. Featuring a unique gyroscopic flying machine, it presents a brand new approach to aerial theatre. The all female cast immerses audiences in an underwater world where performers dive, twist and float over 26 feet in the air to delight, inspire and captivate audiences of all ages.
If you’re a fan of outdoor, green spaces or cinema then this is the place for you in the bank holiday weekend.
On 27 – 30 August, join us at Green Futures events in our beautiful parks, Coventry Canal and other green spaces. There will be a wide range of activities such as live performances, a floating library, boat trips, animation and environmental workshops, film events and more.
