A lost soul lives in a tree. In its branches she feels safe. But now someone else wants to live in the tree too. She feels threatened and vulnerable. Can she live in harmony with a stranger? Or is there something even more scary lurking amongst the branches…?

A bold and beautiful new piece of physical theatre that explores issues of identity and belonging. Set entirely in a seven metre high tree-like structure, Roots is a highly energetic and interactive piece. In their distinctive style, Highly Sprung performers move effortlessly in an around the tree structure using bungee aerial movement and dance; creating an intriguing, entertaining and visually stunning experience for all the family.

A brand new piece of outdoor street theatre performance Roots asks audiences to actively participate in the pursuit to protect Tree, caring for its leaves, repairing its roots and understanding its importance.
