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.
